Ok,
I went to the muesuem over the weekend and looked at Mrs. Astor's lifebelt. they have two in there collection and both are of linen with 2 1/2" thick cork blocks, the strap over the shoulders is about 3" wide and 10-12" long, they are machine sewn with 1/2" seams and the stiching 1/4" from the edge. (standard size foot on machine closest to fabric.)the sizes for the cork blocks are the same as posted before, the cork is handstitched in with 16/2 linen thread using a whip stitch with 5 stitches to an inch, the thread is two strand and in natural color. the straps are of 1/2" wide cotton herringbone tape and i would guestimate at about 40" long or so, it was hard to tell as they are tied. and the neck on it looked about like this. if you would like me to write up sewing ionstructions for you i would be more then happy to, contact me at itz3r1k@yahoo.com,
i hope this helps you


Thank you,
Erik W. Creekmore
