mislabeled as skirt #

The garment is for the upper body. It looks like an 18th century jacket or caraco.

Thank you #

Thank you for pointing out the error. The image of a bodice was accidentally attached to this record for a skirt. I have corrected the error. The bodice is accession number 1915.36.
