Here is a wonderful survivor jacket from the late 1800s or early 1900s which could have been made for a young child of either gender. It is made of a light brown fabric which is adorned with dainty ecru lace. Measuring about 16" long, it is about 11 1/2" shoulder to shoulder. The sleeves are about 7" under the arm and 12" along the top side. They have a slight curved design at the sleeve opening. The inside is lined with pink polished cotton fabric and it has 2 hook and eye closures in the front. It is designed with several wide pleats in front and back and there is both hand and machine stitching involved. Though this jacket is showing its age with some nips in the fabric, it is still worthy of a place in a collection or used as a pattern. It would also look great framed under glass!
