Let Them Knit Cake is a pattern collection inspired by Marie Antoinette, but made for the modern woman.

Coronation Tank plays off the motifs of Marie’s coronation robe as seen in a 1775 painting by Jean-Baptiste André Gautier-Dagoty. Brocade designs are interpreted as cables while the lines of a rococo corset are transformed into a princess seamed fitted tank top. Wear alone or layer as a vest and adopt a little bit of Marie’s style into your thoroughly modern wardrobe.
