Pimento and Olive Spencer Jacket

I have lovingly dubbed this regency era spencer jacket the Pimento and Olive jacket because of the colors!

This wool spencer is fully lined with medium weight cotton and was made as part of the collection of garments headed to The Jean LaFitte National Historic Park for the 200th anniversary Battle of New Orleans.

Transitional Stays

We sent along these regency era transitional stays for the park rangers at The Jean LaFitte National Historic Park to wear at the 200th anniversary Battle of New Orleans! You can guarantee they were authentic from head to toe!

 To ensure a quality fit on all corsets and stays, it is important to denote which cup size you need when you place your order. You can see the difference in cup sizes on these two corsets. The one on the left is a B cup and the one on the right is a D cup. I do not recommend this style of corset for sizes larger than D.trasitionalstays4

200th anniversary Battle of New Orleans

The living history world has been all abuzz about the 200th anniversary Battle of New Orleans! Did you get to go? We did not, but many of our garments did! Here are some pelisses and redingotes we made for the Jean LaFitte National Park Service especially for this event!

These regency era outer garments are made of wool and fully lined in medium weight cotton. I put hidden pockets in the front skirt just large enough to stash away a watch, some money, or even a cell phone!

This navy blue wool coat is my favorite 🙂

I hope these coats kept the park rangers warm and toasty while looking their authentic best! See more of what we made for the 200th anniversary of the Battle of New Orleans!
