Product Description

This striking jacket was the height of chic for the late 1810s, with the Renaissance-revival sleeve puffs combined with military-inspired rows of rouleau trim along the front and accents of single or double piping along the center front, armscye, cuff, and collar. Its longer length hinting at the impending slow return to a more natural waistline.

FIT:
This jacket would have been worn over a chemise, corset, and with at least one bodiced petticoat or gown. It has one dart for shaping in the front.

FABRIC:
The original fabric is a silk velvet body with silk twill accents and the lining is a striped black and white silk. The pattern works well in various weights of cotton, linens, and silks.

CHOOSING SIZE:
When deciding which size is correct for you to use, measure your rib cage under your bust, preferably with your corset and underpinnings on, as well as your bust. The instructions include directions on how to alter the pattern to suit your own measurements using the one front dart.

 

Sizes 8 - 18 or 18 - 28
