This petite jacket is cut in the 18th century style of northern Europe. Both the outer and inner fabrics are pieced from fragments, which suggests the garment is made from cloth that has seen prior use. The inner lining is made of linen and presumably of Dutch manufacture, while the outer fabric is from India.
