Gorgeous Shawl

Natalie Garbett is an English costume expert with a smashing blog. Here she demonstrates the actual size of a Regency era shawl. Those ladies in white muslin needed something to keep them warm in the cold, damp climate.


  1. That is huge!! Thanks so much for finding it. Tweeted.

  2. I had no idea it would be so large! As a seamstress, I can see by the way she is holding it that it has to be at least three yards/meters long and maybe one and a half yards/meter wide. The color and border edges are gorgeous.
