The pattern for this pierrot jacket is taken from Kvinnligt mode under två sekel. The original is made of striped silk and luckily enough I had a piece of striped cotton in my stash. Though I have used this jacket for several years, it is still not finished. I need to tweak the front so it fits better and both front and sleeves need their buttons! For now I just pin it shut.
Also, if you compare the photo above with the one below, it looks vastly better with the proper amount of petticoats to set it off.
Please ignore that my cap is trying to escape, the little rascal.
