Content Description: 

This jacket was hand-made by Yayako Nishioka in Manzanar for Anna Sugimoto. Many pieces of clothing were hand-made in camp, whether sewn, knitted or crocheted. Some women brought their own sewing machines. It was eventually determined that the need for clothing warranted a clothing factory. A wide variety of garments, ranging from baby jumpers to tailored suits, were produced. The largest orders were for overalls, hospital uniforms, children's dresses, shirts and blouses.
