Introducing the JANET Colonial Jacket - a gorgeously designed 18th-century masterpiece that will effortlessly whisk you away to a world of elegance and grace.

The sophisticated, long-skirted jacket, elegantly open at the front and tastefully secured with lace, features an Outlander Tartan Stomacher.

The petticoat consists of fabric panels, connected at the sides
while leaving the upper ends open on each side. This design enables easy wearing of the skirt.

The panels of this historical petticoat feature 18th-century-style pleats. At the front, pleats extend towards the sides, while at the back, they converge in the middle. In the photos, the petticoat is worn over a bustle pad, which adds volume to the hips and accentuates the waist's slenderness.

This tartan is meticulously designed to replicate the original as closely as possible, using natural dyes derived from vegetation available to the clan.

The colors, brown and grey,
serve as effective camouflage during hunting expeditions. The Fraser tartan for OUTLANDER, inspired by the Fraser Hunting Weathered Tartan, was carefully chosen to suit the show's time period and setting.
