I was invited to a Christmas party not long after my Mom gave me this beautiful cherry red dotted velvet. I don't know if it's cotton velvet or poly, but I don't really care what it is, it's really pretty!
Since time was short and I already knew it fit, I used the Past Patterns 1809 spencer jacket pattern. The lining is navy blue thai silk that came from the stash. The buttons and buckle are vintage and also came from the stash.
The Christmas party was unfortunately postponed due to weather, but I'll wear the spencer tomorrow for a holiday tea in Annapolis.
The necklace is a collet necklace from Dames a la Mode: https://www.etsy.com/shop/damesalamode
Here are a few pics of the jacket on the form.
