Nice example of a caraco jacket from the Fashion Museum of the City of Paris. Caraco is a female jacket worn in the mid-18th – early 19th century. This style of jacket was often worn with a petticoat, open in the front, and with a stomacher or a decorative stays. And the sleeves were either full-length or 3/4 length but were always tightly fitted.
