Pattern By: Fig Leaf
Made in the USA
These two Canezous are lovely examples of a jacket style that developed in France in 1795 as the new higher waisted gowns came into fashion. These were meant to be worn over a gown like a Spencer. Later fashion plates show a long sleeved version made from velvet.
Canezou A was embroidered after it was constructed and is a fine example of needlework.
Canezou B has tambour work designs in an allover pattern. More than likely this work was done before the fabric was cut.
