Rosette belts became popular in the mid-1860s. My rosette belts are hand-sewn from silk ribbon. The rosette is separate so you can adjust the belt length to your waist and then pin it on. (See video)
The rosette is approximately 3" (7 cm) across, and the belt length is 1.5 yards (54" or 137 cm). **Let me know if you need a longer belt length.**
People in the past wore a cockade to tell a story about themselves. I love researching what those stories were and why people wanted to tell them. People today have stories to tell too, so that's what motivates me to keep making cockades! What's your story and how can I help you tell it better?
