I love 17th century embroideries;
this jacket dates from 1610-1620, and
was worn by Margaret Laton, daughter of Sir
Hugh Browne, a merchant of the City of Londen.
She married Francis Laton, one of the Yeoman
of the Jewel House. ( like to read this, so i can
imaging this Margaret in her lovely jacket)
Woman's jacket, dating from the first quarter
of the 17th century. If you look closely, you will
recognize: roses, honeysuckle, pansies, cornflo-
wer, strawberries, currants and acorns.
Used stitches: chain, stem, satin, trellis, darning,
plaited braid stich and couching.
I will only mention the flowers: honeysuckle,
borage, pansy, foxglove, rose, cornflower and
Three-dimentional peapods and worms.
I took all the images from ' Historical Fashion
in detail, the 17th and 18th Centuries'
