Baroque velvet jacket

 

  Jackets were mostly used in indoor, although in Holland much evidence is found for affluent women wearing  fine jackets outside as well, but they wouldn't have been worn ever for evening wear nor for polite company. The artwork for this velvet jacket was a portrait of a lady at her toilet, Gerard ter Borch IIís workshop, (1672-73).
