Fabrics: Stash busting and, unfortunately, not historically accurate in fiber content. The jacket is a linen blend and the petticoat is polyester/rayon taffeta with heavily machine embroidery throughout.

As far as 18th century patterns go, I don't have a very extensive collection of ready patterns. I'm working almost entirely from two books: The Cut of Women's Clothes, by Norah Waugh; and The Evolution of Fashion, by Margot Hill. As neither of these have a pattern for just the sort of jacket I was thinking of, I took the 1780 l'Anglaise pattern from the Waugh book and simply used the bodice pieces as my base for drawing out the jacket. I mostly just eyeballed it and then made my alterations to the lining, which I used as my mockup for this.
As for color and pattern scheme, I was going for something more garden fantasy, like the 18th century French fashion plates. We sometimes forget that a lot of the color and pattern combinations they used back then would be considered gaudy to our now so sophisticated aesthetic of monochrome hues and palette matching naturals, LOL.
