A Spencer Jane Austen would love!

Kleidung um 1800 has a fascinating post on Sabine’s Whiskey-colored spencer.

For all of you who covet a closet of Regency clothing…

For all of you who sew…

For all of you who dream in technicolor when reading Austen novels…

You need to read about — and see — this beautiful piece of work. Blog readers get a real “feel” for this type of clothing, the spencer, which possibly gets more “press” than any other item of Regency-period clothing.

    Oh wow – blush – thanks again for the mention! I’m very happy you’re fond of my interpretation of the spencer. Clothing back then was so beautiful and flattering, wasn’t it?!

      Hello, again, Sabine —

      I just LOVED this piece — and the pictures really give your audience a look at the entire from all angles. I don’t do costumes at all — but as a sewer can appreciate the time, effort, etc etc. required to make such a piece. A lot of time people who sew themselves Regency attire don’t think about the FABRIC — and that makes a BIG difference in the look of the outfit. Keep up the sewing — and the blogging!
