Be your own Jane Bennet in this high-quality, historically accurate Regency era spencer. Whether you are an attendee at an event, a historical reenactor, an actress in theatre, or an avid admirer of Jane Austen's works, this spencer will keep you warm outdoors and is sure to catch the eye of your Mr. Bingley!

Spencers were commonly worn outdoors over the lightweight gowns of the Regency period to guard against chill.  This spencer has bow closure in the front and a bow detail in the back; both details are inspired by spencers found in extant fashion plates and artwork.

When you purchase a made-to-order item, you get the spencer of your dreams by choosing the fabric from the drop-down options, providing measurements for a custom fit, and even purchasing extra available add-ons! (Search the website for “add-ons” to see what’s available!)  Please note that trims such as lace, braid, etc. will vary slightly depending on stock available. Contact us through the “Custom Orders” page if you would like to discuss additional fabric and customization options that are not available on this listing.

As a custom piece, this item is professionally handmade at my Texas (USA) studio and order fulfillment takes 10-12 weeks. Please see the website header for a current estimate on the month your order will be shipped to you. Shipping within the U.S. is FREE for all orders over $50.

ALL THE DETAILS

This spencer is made-to-order: choose the size that you currently wear in contemporary sizing and choose the fabric combination from the fabric choices. Within 48 hours of receiving your order, I will send you a measurement worksheet listing the measurements required for a perfect fit.

The spencer features:

  • a full lining of 100% cotton in a neutral color
  • a high ruffle neckline
  • a front bow (tie) closure made of ribbon
  • a decorative self-fabric bow on the back

Current fabric choices are shown with inspiration photos to help you visualize the spencer in that fabric.  These inspiration photos are either photos of extant spencers or period fashion plates.  They serve ONLY as inspiration and do NOT depict exactly how your spencer will be made. Once you order, I will contact you to discuss measurements and confirm exact details.

Feel free to contact us through the "Custom Orders" page if you wish to provide your own fabric or you have a different color in mind than the ones shown.  

To achieve the correct historical silhouette, it is pictured over a chemise, stays, and petticoat, but no chemise, stays, or petticoat are included with this listing. This spencer is made to fit over stays and will not fit correctly over modern undergarments. However, if you would like your commissioned spencer to fit over modern undergarments, please send a message, and I will be happy to oblige!

Measure your bust and waist to determine which size to order and choose your size based on the size chart guidelines. For the most accurate fit, please take the measurements while wearing your stays and other undergarments (i.e. chemise, petticoat, etc).

HOW TO MEASURE YOURSELF

Please refer to the measurement graphic in the listing and the video tutorial if you need assistance in understanding and taking your measurements. If you still have additional questions, please feel free to contact me.
