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 a Black Watch 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.

Finding the Right Size:
Please refer to the size chart to select the correct size for your bodice. Keep in mind that historical costumes don't follow standard sizing, so getting an accurate fit is important for comfort and effectiveness. Here's a complete guide on how to measure yourself.

Custom Sizing:
If your measurements don't align perfectly with the sizes on the chart, we recommend choosing the "custom size" option. After placing your order, submit your measurements through our Custom Request Form as soon as possible. Delay in receiving your measurements will also delay your order.

Black Watch Tartan Plaid 10oz. This 10oz medium-weight tartan fabric is woven in Scotland from 100% pure new wool.

The deeply admired Black Watch tartan presents itself with striking bands of dark green and navy blue, boldly interwoven with dramatic black stripes.

This captivating design is not only prestigious but holds a special place in Scottish history as the official Government tartan. Named after the valiant 'Black Watch' companies formed in the early 18th century to defend the Scottish Highlands, this pattern carries an air of courage and allegiance to the Royal Highland Regiment.

What makes the Black Watch tartan particularly magnificent is its 'open tartan' status. You needn't belong to a specific clan to wear its eye-catching design. Simply donning this exquisite pattern allows you to embrace and pay homage to the compelling world of Scottish traditions.

To care for your costume, we recommend dry cleaning only, ensuring your costume remains in pristine condition for all your historical adventures.

All our garments, including the JANET Costumes, are handmade in our workshop in Spain. Each piece is crafted with love and care, using the finest materials to ensure excellent quality. These garments are meant to be cherished for years to come.

Please note that our items are meticulously handmade, which means it will take some time for us to create them. The typical production time for a JANET outfit in linen and tartan plaid ranges from 6-8 weeks, depending on the current order volume. Keep in mind that the processing time does not include shipping.
