The pattern is the Sense and Sensibility one that I think everyone has. :-) I changed it up slightly - adding a casing of blue wool to the bottom of the spencer. I also had to shorten the sleeves, take in the shoulder straps, and take in the back of the spencer to get it to fit nicely.
The spencer is lined in very much not period flannel backed baby blue poly satin. Maybe it's rayon satin. Something not natural satin. It's all part of the "leftovers" pile. Mom's cape that she loves is lined in the same satin. So I know it's safe.
