Crochet Regency Era Wrap | Vintage Crochet Series
Hello everyone, I hope you are well and having a good week!Today I would like to bring to you a very special project, my Crochet Regency Era wrap.
Indeed, as some of you may know, I love the nineteenth century, which was actually the subject of my Master’s Degree Dissertation (Romantic Art in French Nineteenth Century Painting). Long story short, one may call me a 19th Century art and fashion aficionado. I love nothing more than creating crochet pieces from my favourite era. I hope you enjoy making this easy and beautiful project as much as I loved creating it.

The Vintage Crochet Series
This will be part of my new crochet series, entitled my Vintage Crochet series. For this series I will be creating pieces from different moments in history, from the Medieval times to the modern times. Some of my patterns will be from the Regency era, the French Revolution, the Second World War, all the way to the flower power crochet golden age of the 60’s and 70’s. I am very excited to start releasing these vintage inspired videos and patterns.

The Inspiration behind The Crochet Regency Era Wrap
This pink beautiful wrap was inspired by watching the BBC’s latest rendition of Les Misérables, which is my favourite book in the whole world. I absolutely adore Victor Hugo and his romantic depiction of 19th Century Paris and France. The BBC did a great job filming the characters for this masterpiece series. My personal favourite Les Misérables character is Fantine. You can check out my Fantine Shawl tutorial I released a few months ago here Crochet The Fantine Shawl.
Once again I was inspired to make a crochet wrap when I saw a beautiful soft pink costume she was wearing. Lily Collins is so amazing and beautiful in this role, and to be honest, she is the only Fantine I like depicted in this rendition of the saga. She is soft, honest, strong, feminine, and will do anything for her child Cosette. She embodies all that is feminine, and as we know, will sacrifice all that she has for her precious daughter.
A Regency Era Wrap
This wrap is characteristic of this era-the 1820’s approximately (the Second Restauration in France, and Regency Era in England). It is rectangular in shape, quite narrow and long, in a very feminine colour. I tried to recreated a stitch which was popular in French 19th Century, which I have called the Archs and Fans stitch. It does look a lot like the Virus Stitch, but lengthwise if that makes sense. I have called it my Regency Era Wrap, and hope you will enjoy this new #vintagecrochet series too!
