Marie Hamlet Inspired Cuff



I made this beautiful cuff for a Marie Antoinette Hamlet inspired cuff swap. The materials needed to be mostly natural and to be in light colors. I think my partner will enjoy this. I know I loved creating it! It is constructed of vintage lace; vintage eyelet cotton flounce (lace is 1930's and the cotton flounce is Edwardian); a hand dyed silk ribbon flower, made by me; vintage embroidered cotton motifs from an Edwardian table cloth; french jacquard ribbon for the backing; a vintage wooden button, probably Edwardian and vintage gold elastic for the button closure. All hand sewn with linen colored cotton thread. Enjoy!
