I certainly have a love affair with 18th c. jackets. They’re just so darned cute! Now I get to decide, yet again, what kind of jacket to make from 2 yards of lampas brocade I found online, that should be arriving today.
I only have two yards, so it has to be a fairly little jacket. I’m thinking something along the lines of a pierrot or suzanna style – a bodice with a flirty-skirty tail out the back, but then the casaquins and full-skirted jackets are earlier and fit with the “Prelude to Victory” 1780-81 event date better.

Although a casaquin with a short-ish skirt might work too.

Or maybe a swallow-tailed type of style, over a matching stomacher?
