One of the final orders in need of completion before we moved to our new location was an Early 19th century spencer jacket to be worn with the evening gown below: The spencer jacket is brown cotton velveteen with tiny peach stripes running through. The customer requested a small gathered stand up collar. The buttons are beveled mother of pearl encased in brass. I opted for a one piece jacket back. I put three deep tucks in the back to taper the waist but leave enough ease through the center back for comfort. The jacket is fully lined and ends just below the bust. This jacket is intended for the new living history program at Perry’s Victory and International Peace Museum in Put-in-Bay, Ohio.
