Lady Susan's Sunday Spencer

Regular price $6.50 $0.00
This modern Spencer sports a belledging on waist and sleeves, witha cable and bobble pattern along the bodice's length. Sunday church bells and bell towers that would bring everyone together on Sunday mornings during the time of Jane Austen make the bells and bobbles particularly appropriate. It was a time when young and old, rich and poor, would all gather for services. Today, Sunday morning means different things to different people, but still we enjoy gathering with those we love. Wear this cropped jacket for a walk in the country or in town for Sunday brunch, just as Lady Susan might have done.
