white worsted "bullion" fringe

Post by Andy R »

I am trying to find white worsted fringing to use on epaulets on an 1812 pattern British Light Dragoon jacket, similar to below.

Also to be used at the rear of the jacket for the "waterfall"

I've been through a few web sites and haberdashers, but so far found nothing suitable.

Any ideas?

Many thanks,
Andy
Young men have often been ruined through owning horses, or through backing them, but never through riding them: unless of course they break their necks, which, taken at a gallop, is a very good death to die

Now that is smart. Are you stepping out at Bolsover?
On topic, I once had one of these made for someone by Hamish Macloud of History-Making. Haven't spoken to him in a while, but he may be able to give you a lead. I'll send you a pic of what he did if you like.

Edit. Found pic.

Crikey - not spoken to Hamish for quite a while.

I shall give him a shout as I hadn't thought about that one.

Cheers,
Andy

Potentially Waterloo if we can get the horses sorted, failing that Eastnor.
Could have a couple at Albuera, but we will try and push out the earlier uniform for that if I can borrow the tarletons.
