1912 Dainty Collar Bow – Hand Embroidery



Hand Embroidery Pattern for 1912 Dainty Collar Bow

SKU: RR135H Categories: , Tags: ,


This charming bow tie will add a pop of color and interest to a basic Edwardian shirtwaist, but pairs equally well with modern blouses and cottagecore dresses. This design for a “dainty collar bow” is based on one advertised in the April 1912 edition of The Modern Priscilla. It features a cutwork edge surrounding a floral motif, with buttonholes at the center through which a velvet ribbon is threaded. 

Black velvet ribbon is always a safe choice, but this design is charming with bright colors such as “lavender, green, or cerise.” All of the samples were worked in white linen, but it is suggested that they could also be worked in colored fabric to match a shirtwaist or dress. While not specifically mentioned in the original article, they are also lovely stitched in colored thread on a white ground. 

KITS: A limited number of supply kits for this design are available in the shop.

You will receive a detailed PDF containing historical notes, tips for transferring your pattern, the embroidery design, and a suggested stitches based on the original artwork.

Finished size:  3.5″ wide and 1.75″ tall before the addition of ribbon.
