Taking Your Measurements

  1. Get a friend to help you if possible.
  2. Wear the bra and blouse or shirt you would likely wear with the jacket.
  3. Stand naturally and not in front of a mirror, to ensure accurate measurements.
  4. Take the following measurements:
    1. Bust circumference (around the fullest part of your bust).
    2. Waist circumference (around the smallest part of your waist).
    3. Hip circumference (around the fullest part of your hips).
    4. Sleeve length from shoulder tip to wrist.
  5. Find your size by aligning your measurements on our Size Chart.

    Our most sumptuous design, this Evening Jacket took significant inspiration from ballgowns created by the first English couturier, Charles Frederick Worth. Due to the complexity of this design, 37 pattern pieces are required to assemble this stunning gala jacket!

    Silk satin jacquard is used extensively in this design, forming the front and back panels of the jacket, collar and cuffs.

    100% British wool makes up the rest of the jacket. Notice the very flattering effect brought about by the glowing silk damask in the centre of the jacket contrasting with the soft matt wool on each side.

    To further dress up this style, detachable silk satin ivory pleated shirt collar and cuffs can be added to the jacket to create a memorable and stunning look!

    A gorgeous offering in our 2023 Collection, this jacket offers impeccable tailoring honouring the feminine form.

    • Black silk satin damask forms the front and back panels of the jacket, collar and cuffs.
    • Pleats at the front and back are in solid black satin.
    • Side panels and sleeves are 100% British wool.
    • Padded silk damask shawl collar and cuffs.
    • Rolled crown shoulders.
    • Wide gold passementerie banding on cuffs.
    • Gold silk ornamental drops at the back, detachable when desired.
    • Classic gold buttons with the Belle Brummell insignia, made from solid cast brass with gold gilt finish.
    • We offer detachable collar and cuff sets to embellish your jacket and take it from a daytime to evening style. (Please note if you order these, the jacket will be made with the attachments in place. This cannot be done later, so please consider your needs when you place your order.)
    • Each jacket will be delivered in a luxury eco giftbox, complete with garment care booklet and branded hanger.
    • This jacket requires over 30 pattern pieces to create it and every one makes a difference!

The jackets are not, however, made-to-measure where your jacket would be made exactly to your measurements. Therefore, please follow our guide to taking your measurements and check our measurement charts, as this distinction is important.

      Elegant Attachable Shirt Collar and Cuffs

      For additional versatility, we have created two different sets of attachable shirt collars and cuffs for the jackets. Some women prefer to avoid the extra mass of a blouse and these sets can be snapped into place in a minute.

      Day Collar and Cuff Sets

      Day Collar and Cuff Set

      For daywear, we offer a set which includes a snowy white pique cotton collar and simple day cuffs that can be snapped into place on the jacket.

      Evening Collar and Cuff Set

      For evening, we created a collar and cuff set made out of a creamy ivory silk satin in a mini-box pleat. The collar frames the face beautifully and the box pleat cuffs snap into place with poppers.
