Woman's jacket from the Jacobean period, a beautiful linen worked with silk and metal thread. The jacket is covered with diverse Tudor and Stuart flora, and includes roses, lilies, borage, acorns, carnations, pansies, daffodils, and peas in their pods. This jacket is especially elaborate, as it includes a two-step wrapped ladder stitch, which would have required three TIMES as much labor and metal thread as the common plaited braid stitch. by lucille
