What is a Sewing Chatelaine - with Sew Very Easy

Sewing chatelaines were inspired by key rings carried by the female head of a grand French estate, “la chatelaine,”. Sewing Chatelaines were used during the 18th century and was attached to the waist of a woman’s dress or skirt to hold small tools for their everyday work. The typical seamstress might keep a tape measure, thimble, needle case, thread wax, thread cutter, etc.

Laura Coia of Sew Very Easy shares her own sewing chatelaine with us with a brief history on chatelaines and some interesting information about vintage notions. Subscribe to Sew Very Easy here:
