A tribute to late 18th / early 19th century love of military fashion, this pattern for a Spencer Jacket translates male styles into a very feminine garment. It accentuates the high empire waistline while featuring a high stand-up collar, lapels and an open front. Our model is based on an extant garment in a french collection, dated to about 1801. The collar, lower edge and sleeve edges can be embroidered or trimmed with wool Soutache. The design is included in the pattern.
Sizes US 10-18 , UK 12-20, France 42-46 (Bust 88 – 104 cm = 35-41 1/2”).
