JRJacket - 1750's - 1780's Ladies' Jackets. This very special J. P. Ryan pattern contains 10 pattern pieces which may be combined to create an entire wardrobe of 18th century jackets. Four views are given, each for a different time period. Because all the pattern pieces, i.e. sleeves, cuffs, backs and front, were designed to fit together, you may create additional styles, based on your own personal research. This group of jackets uses one basic body with front, sleeve, cuff, skirt and length variations. Each view is composed of different pieces, and pieces may be combined to create other styles. The dates given on each view are approximate, based on elements found in extant examples.
View A is cut with a long skirt, center front closure, and sleeves with winged cuffs, suitable for the 1750ís.
View B has a long full skirt, open front, stomacher and cuffed sleeves, as was worn in the 1760ís.
View C has a short full skirt, open front, stomacher, and curved sleeves, appropriate for the 1770ís.
View D has a short skirt with pointed back, open front, stomacher and curved sleeves appropriate for the late 1770ís to early 1780ís.
The elements of this original pattern have been derived from extant garments in the collections of Snowshill Manor, The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, the Kyoto Costume Institute, and a private collector.
A pointed back may also be seen in Description des Arts et Metiers, LíArt de la Couturiere, Fig. 14, M. Garsault, Paris, 1769.
