- Assignment Week 7: French Revolution and Empire Periods
Step 2: The Regency Neckcloth
For this assignment, I cut a piece of 70" x 10" white muslin cloth. Then I tried my draping hand on my speaker. I did not understand how to create the Gordian Knot or Barrel Knot. Thus, I focused on the ties without bow. I was not able to recreate the color scheme for all ties as my cloth was of the "purest blanc d'innocence virginale." Please refer to the Files section for the results.
I used the fine muslin cloth as recommended in the instructions. It was quite easy to drape the cloth accordingly.
Mail Coach Tie:
The cloth was not long enough to tie it around my speaker two times. I liked spreading the fabric to hide the single knot.
For this tie, I just went by the illustration as the instructions did not serve me.
For this tie, I proceeded the same way. As my cloth was not starched, it was almost impossible to recreate the horizontal dents.
