Jane Austen Society of North America - Pittsburgh Region

The Pittsburgh region meets 4-6 times a year in various venues around the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area. Some of these meetings include informal teas with group discussion. Some include a viewing and discussion of a movie adaptation of a Jane Austen novel. Others are more formal luncheons. These luncheons feature speakers who discuss Jane Austen, her life, books, and movies, as well as Regency England.

This is one of the most elaborate Spencer style jackets I have come across. It is part of the collection of the Chertsey Museum and was the inspiration for a costume in the recent film production of Emma with Anna Taylor-Joy in the title role.
This pale pink silk Spencer comes from 1815. Every bit of the extensive decorative work is done with the same material as the body of the garment. The bodice is trimmed out with bias cording in a pattern suggestive of palm fronds. The collar and sleeve caps are a complex structure of double-pointed shapes, each edged with more bias cord, that gives them support.
While this style of jacket was essential wear for quite some time, soon the waistline would start to drop back to its natural position, and the Spencer would fall from use.
