HSFM Challenge # 8: Heirlooms & Heritage + Curtain-along!
What the item is: 1779 Jacket
The Challenge: #8 Heirlooms and Heritage
Fabric: Waverly Curtain collection Cotton Fabric, muslin fabric (lining), interfacing
Pattern: J.P. Ryan 18th century wome's Jacket
How historically accurate is it?: The pattern is pretty accurate, but as for the print itself, it's possible; large floral prints like this, were popular back during that time.
Hours to complete: 2 days for the muslin construction, and once I got the Waverly fabric, it took me 3 days to cut out the pattern, sew the whole thing together, and make all of the trim by using a loose running stitch and gathering it up tight enough for that ruched effect.
First worn: I will be wearing this to the Battle of Red Bank reenactment in NJ
Total cost: $20
