I finished my jacket over a week ago but haven’t gotten around to posting pictures because I was wondering if it needed more cockades. (I might save those for a hat).
The jacket is made of powder blue Merino wool and lined with linen and cotton.
The gold-colored silk skirt was previously made to go with a green dress, hence the ruffled green trim on the bottom.
The cotton lace is vintage and was given to me by a friend.
The cuffs and collar are made from the same embroidered cotton jacquard the false vest is made from. The mini cockades are made from pleated ribbon and gold/silver-colored buttons.
I plan to wear the ensemble at a Revolutionary Picnic hosted by the California Greater Bay Area Costumer’s Guild, along with shoes and stockings from American Duchess.
