This 1850s era wool jacket was styled after an original lady’s denim jacket in the Met.
Made of 100% wool yarn dyed homespun with cotton lining, this jacket is just enough to keep the chill away during crisp Autumn evenings. It has a small patch pocket tucked away in the interior to hide any small incidental items a lady farmer might need.
This jacket is headed to Historic Brattonsville to be used in their 19th century farm life interpretation program.

Hi! My name is Susan and I am a historian, seamstress, teacher, mother, and wife. My passion for history has manifested itself in the art of recreating clothing from different periods of time. Growing up in the American South, I am heavily schooled in the art of recreating clothing from the 19th century. After nearly a decade of immersing myself primarily in the Victorian period, I found the need to branch out and explore other periods of time. However, it is my connection with the American South and the clothing of rural America that continues to be the driving force behind my designs. View all posts by Susan
