“…It was a very fine and beautiful web, and the merchant made a very good bargain when he gave her twenty guineas for her shawl.”

A knit lace shawl was high on the list of expensive presents that Amelia Sedley received from the Major before her family fell from society’s grace. Vanity Fair is one of my favorite books, and I regularly stare sadly at my closet wishing that it were socially acceptable to dress like a 19th century socialite. While a corset and crinoline might be a little much for my daily trip to the coffee house, the good news is a shawl is timeless. Amelia’s Stole is decadent enough for Becky Sharp to wear to a ball, and versatile enough for you to wear it to Starbucks. Worked in a traditional fringed rectangle, and accented with crystal beads, this will quickly become a staple in your wardrobe.
