c. 1760 Jesuit

This was more of an update type of project than a new gown. I managed to find more of the same silk taffeta that I used for my robe à la Française in 2011 so I just made a hooded waistcoat and sleeve extensions to make it double as an 18th century Jesuit gown.

How it works:

I pinned the sleeve extensions on under sleeve ruffles.

The gown is pinned in to the waistcoat under the robings like it would be in to a stomacher.


Back of the waistcoat is plain linen, back seam is flat felled.

Visible part of back is covered with silk, this is the underside.

Fronts and hood are two layers of silk, cream and white, cream silk facing.

Shoulder seam

Bust dart

Sleeve extensions
