This reproduction women’s denim jacket is a custom designed/custom commissioned 1850s era piece based on this original in the collection of FIT.
Working with the client, we decided upon a darker denim and a full quilted cotton lining.
The jacket features wooden buttons and lots of hand- stitched details.I chose to use a bright, white thread to showcase the stitching.
You can view the jacket in action here!

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
