Hello:

I hope someone can help me.

I am looking for instructional information on how to make a sleeve/cuff, but I have no idea what the style is called and the fashion plates I've seen are not helpful.

It is a frilly, lace-monster that sticks out of a sleeve and cascades everywhere in sort of a half-circle shape. Sort of a petticoat sticking out of a jacket sleeve that hides most of the hand. I've seen it on men's costumes in film. Typically, the outfit has a matching jabot. It may not be historically accurate.

What the heck is this called?

Thanks!

Are you perhaps thinking of engageantes? (They're typically seen on women's sleeves in the 18th century and are detachable.) If you're looking for a pattern for a men's version, the OOP Butterick 3894 (which, oddly, is sitting right beside my computer right now!) has them, although I can't say how accurate they are.

Yes!

Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!

I was thinking about making a pair of these and a few other accessories (jabot/dickey/ruffles and back clip) for a friend so that she could take an off-the-rack jacket and make it a bit more steamy.

Then, I remembered that she's wanting to do more of a Jessica Rabbit look.

We'll see what I can do in a short amount of time. And her event takes place over several days. I'm sure she's going to want to change it up and be a science nerd one of those days.

Apologies for the word vomit. Brain is in brainstorming mode.

As much as I like to think I know a lot about many different things, pre-WWI fashion ... not so much. A wee smidge of Victorian, sure.

I'm grateful for the education.

And now I have many ideas.

And to add fuel to the fire, after looking high and low for this information, the latest issue of *Stitch* has a tutorial on making fancy cuffs. Of course, had I actually read the issue when it was purchased ...

But I did not know they were called engageantes. And *Stitch* simply called them "fancy cuffs."

Again ... thanks all!
