Dear Maker-type friends: have any of you created one of these that would have fittings or something to hold a phone, compact and lipstick, and ID/credit card? Because THAT is the sort of chaletaine I need.

A chatelaine which was displayed at the Great Exhibition of 1851. Before the 1850s pockets were uncommon in female clothing and so women used chatelaines as a fashionable, decorative means of carrying small and useful items. The chatelaine would be hung from a belt and, through a series of clips and chains, contain a variety of objects such as scissors, keys, scent bottles, penknives, tweezers, writing pads and letter openers.
