Description

18th century jacket from a JP Ryan pattern with embroidered sleeve ruffles and yellow petticoat worn over a makeshift chemise and linen stays/corset that I’m in the process of binding. My husband and I do English Country Dance and this is my first costume for our dance group’s primary era.

Material Notes

Linen, thread, ribbon, cotton tape and covered buttons. Linen is such a pleasure to work with!

Novice

    This looks like it’d be a lot of fun to dance in. I do English and Scottish country dancing, and although I’ve made dresses for several balls, I’ve never tried to make a period gown.
