Ladies Dressing Saque

Ladies Dressing Saque
C.1876- 1877. A heavy ribbed cotton dressing saque or combing jacket. This one is very fitted at the back with princess seaming and full at the front. It might have been used as during maternity. The fabric is fleecy on the inside and the shoulder seams are slightly dropped. The buttons are period but are not original, the original buttons were little fuzzy fleecy balls. This jacket would have been worn in the bedroom when brushing the hair or just lounging about. Bust measures 37". (Formerly from the collection of Leila Hidic)
