Size 8-18 Lined Jacket or Caraco ca. 1770-1785


Fig Leaf

Made in the USA

The original garment was likely worn in the Connecticut area in the 1770s but was made of a slik brocade dated to the 1730s. Later in the 1780s the jacket was reenforced. This is an interesting full size pattern with complete directions and a description and pictures of the original. In The Virginia Gazette of 1771, "Run away . . .  a Negro Wench . . .  had on when she went away a black Yarn Serge Jacket" as cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls.
