I have two Regency tail suits for period dance. Being wool they are hot, -to too hot..

I'm looking for a decent period design for something cooler for summer dances but still period correct. Can anyone offer a period correct design, does anyone want to supply a correct but lightweight jacket, (maybe Black or deep maroon)?

The problem is that the ladies get diaphanous gowns with short sleeves and need to do some dancing to warm up, but the men do three dances and are gently cooked.
