British QAIMNS cape

This WWI Era British QAIMNS tippet (cape) was made for the Musee Royal 22e Regiment in Quebec Canada. This cape is an example of our newly updated version of the tippets worn by Queen Alexandra’s Imperial Military Nursing Service organized in 1902. It features the embroidered rose at the back of cape.


This cape is made of 100% wool and is fully lined in cotton sateen. The rose is hand appliqued and made of 100% wool as well.

About Susan

Hi! My name is Susan and I am a historian, seamstress, teacher, mother, and wife. My passion for history has manifested itself in the art of recreating clothing from different periods of time. Growing up in the American South, I am heavily schooled in the art of recreating clothing from the 19th century. After nearly a decade of immersing myself primarily in the Victorian period, I found the need to branch out and explore other periods of time. However, it is my connection with the American South and the clothing of rural America that continues to be the driving force behind my designs.
