What was that amazing garment Meg wore in the 1994 Little Women movie? (She wears it in the scene after Amy’s fall through the ice).

Was it a shrug? A pelerine? A fichu? Or perhaps a sontag (AKA “Bosom Buddy”)?

We finally called it a “Hug-Me-Tight,” defined by Merriam-Webster as “a woman’s short usually knitted sleeveless close-fitting jacket – first known use 1860”, which fits right in with the Civil War era Little Women. (Ours is crocheted, as was the one in the movie!)
