18th Century Jacket and Hat by Verdaera 18th Century Jacket and Hat by Verdaera
This is an 18th Century Jacket and Hat I threw together in a couple of weeks for Pirate Fest.

This was totally an unplanned project! We have Ren Faire and then Pirate Fest every year here, but I've never devoted any time to make historical costumes for it, mostly because I've never found proper shoes. I actually bought 1 yard of fabric with the intention of just making a new crappy ren faire bodice, but that bothered me and it morphed into a crazy 2-week project. I had bought historical replica shoes (from american-duchess.com) and had them dyed yellow to match both a Padme costume and a petticoat from my first 18th century project.

The jacket I have to say is based on historical lines but I can't vouch for it's accuracy. Since I threw this together in a couple weeks, I simply took the pattern I made for my first dress bodice and altered it, refering to general jacket lines in my source materials. I have a corset, but it is fully boned in metal and I can't drive in that, so I added some boning to this bodice to replicate the look. Behind the stomacher are laces for strength, and the stomacher closes by hook-and-eyes, the buttons beind only decorative. The fabric is from JoAnn's home dec section, and is lined in black linen. The flounces I decided to add at 1 in the morning the night before the event, I simply took cotton lawn and did a scallop stitch on my machine.

The hat is one I bought last year at faire, I box-pleated yellow ribbon to go with the petticoat hem, and put a black velvet ribbon around it to tie in with the bodice color. The flowers are from Michael's craft store and I have no clue what type of flowers they are suppose to be other than the black rose.
