The Catherine is a fitted, cropped jacket or 'Spencer' to give it it's correct historical term. It is very typical of Regency fashions but makes a great addition to modern wardrobes too.

The spencer features a traditional roll collar with a single fastening at the centre front, the deep 'v' being very flattering. The sleeves are delicately puffed at the shoulder with decorative petals and buttons while tapering down to the wrist before flaring over the knuckles. At the back a small peplum flares out creating another decorative feature. The spencer is trimmed with piping which you can choose to either contrast or match your fabric colour.

Obviously this is perfect if you are looking for historical costume - the green spencer in the photos was made for a re-enactor who requested hand worked buttonholes and the passimenterie buttons are also very typical of garments of the era.

If you are not looking for historical accuracy then the spencer will have hook and eye fastenings and buttons on the sleeves that match appropriately - usually fabric covered. Please ensure you state whether you want historically accurate or not in the comments box when ordering.

The spencer will be made to order to the measurements you will be asked to provide and you can choose your fabric from cotton drill, linen or silk dupion in a range of colours. Please don't hesitate to ask if you have a different fabric in mind.

This would look stunning in ivory or champagne as part of a wedding ensemble, but works equally well in different colours. It's the perfect addition to your historically inspired wardrobe.
