As a costumer and clothing historian, Annie Modesitt has always loved the fashions of the early nineteenth century, particularly the Spencer jackets popular in England in the 1810s.  A very short jacket that sits just elow the bust line, this Spencer is oddly flattering to many figure types -- it makes the most of trim and not-so-trim waistlines.  Annie’s jacket is worked sideways from cuff to cuff in a striking cable pattern that adds body to the cropped structure.
