Burnley & Trowbridge Mantelet Pattern - Hybrid


( / )


Mantelets (with various spellings) are a cloak like garment that entered the feminine wardrobe in the second quarter of the 18th century as a part of the undress or casual wardrobe. They are, however, a different garment than a cloak or short cloak with unique features in both cut and construction.

  • Based on extensive research, our pattern allows you to create an unlined broadcloth mantelet or a lined or unlined silk, cotton, or linen mantelet with two variations for shape/length and instructions for adapting the shape to your desires. This mantelet includes a hood. Trimming/facing instructions are included.
  • This pattern is one size fits nearly all.
  • Fabrice Requirements: 2 yds each of outer/lining if choosing to line. 
  • Plain lightweight cottons and linens make excellent unlined mantelets for warmer weather. Silk taffetas, figured silks, and silk damasks were used as well and there are French examples made of printed cotton. Broadcloth and velvets are listed in advertisements, as well, and would make for warmer mantelets in cooler climates. 
  • This pattern is a Hybrid Pattern and includes a digital 22 page full color/fully illustrated instruction manual with a physical print copy of the pattern itself. Learn more about our Hybrid Pattern Format.
  • **You will receive an email with the link to the digital instructions when your order ships.**
  • All Burnley and Trowbridge, Co. patterns include instructions to assemble the garment using entirely hand sewing techniques.
