Falda?


Explanation:
Could this be \\\'falda\\\'? (see below) - I also found a very useful textiles/fabric glossary http://www.donadellomabilia.com/letterab.htm
Hope it\\\'s of some help!

basca(o baschina):
dicesi della parte riportata di una giacca che parte dalla cintura e scende più o meno bassa sui fianchi. Più propriamente, si dovrebbe parlare di **\\\"falda\\\"**. Può essere liscia, a pieghe, arricciata... Il termine è esteso anche alla parte superiore riportata di una gonna o di un pantalone con analoghe caratteristiche.
