Regency Jacket

$255.00

These stunning jackets are perfect for finishing off everything from a Regency ball gown to a corset and leather pants.

The snug bodice stops at just the right spot in front to visually narrow your waist and lengthen your legs, and the ankle-length skirt is sewn to the back bodice with generous tucks to create a dramatic flaring silhouette when you dance or spin.

The cut-away design is wonderful for showing off a special corset or beautiful footwear.  You can also pair these jackets with a simple modern dress or jeans for eye-catching party wear.

Buttons and small details may vary slightly from item to item. If you want a specific one, please let us know.

Custom

If you don’t see the fabrics you’re looking for here, please check out the vast selection in our Fabric Galleries.  Prices may vary depending on your choices, so contact us directly for a quote.

For Regency Jackets, you can choose from the following galleries:

  • Suitings (all types)
  • Faux Suedes
  • Brocades
  • Corduroys
  • Silk Brocades.

However, for faux suedes, brocades, silk brocades, and some corduroys (which have no give at all), you’ll want to choose a coordinating Suiting, which will be used as contrast panels and sleeves to give you full mobility.  You can see what this looks like in the black and grey brocade jacket in the product photos.

Sizing

Regency jackets look best when worn quite fitted through the bust and rib cage.

Sleeves are snug at the wrist and can be worn pushed up.  If your arms are very long or very short, or if you want a particular length, please let us know, and we can ask for any measurements we need to customize it for you.  The bicep area of the sleeve has quite a bit of room (the sleeves are gathered to the shoulder), but if you’re concerned about it, include your arm circumference measurement in the order (or contact us directly) and we’ll make sure you have enough space.

The measurements given are actual garment measurements, not your body measurements.  No hip or waist measurement is given, because this jacket is open from the rib cage downward, making lower body fit extremely forgiving.  You’ll need anywhere between 1 and 4 inches of wearing ease (extra space above your actual body measurements) at the bust depending on how snug a fit you like in your clothes and what you’ll be wearing underneath.

If you’re not sure what size you need, please contact us and we’ll guide you through the process.
