Pelican- Lylie of Penhille: Cloak

04 Jun

I was asked to make a cloak for Baroness Lylie of Penhille’s elevation to the Order of the Pelican.

Cloak details:

  • 1/2 circle cloak of lightweight dark blue wool, lined in dark red linen. Cloak is 1/2 length with a period stand up collar.
  • Embroidered pelican badge done in Cotton Pearl, using stem stitch, laid/couched stitch, split stitch, couched basket weave
  • Embroidered badge attached to the cloak in gold work using detached buttonhole stitch.
  • Collar is whipped stitched onto cloak.
  • Internal seams were machine sewn.
  • White linen fleur-de-lys appliques gold worked using detached buttonhole, stitch
  • Gold work running stitch along seam lines for hand sewn finish details.
  • Gold fleur-de-lys frog clasps to complete the closures
