Artifact Monday: Embroidered Jacket of Margaret Laton

This beautifully embroidered jacket once belonged to Margaret Laton. Though it is a stunning example of Jacobean workmanship, it was actually considered casual wear. It, and a portrait of Margaret wearing it, are both preserved at the V&A.

  2. How have I not seen this?!? Absolutely stunning! And the colors are still so vibrant! Thank you for sharing this!
    I am excited you are doing a Stuart week!
    Coincidently, I just checked out a new book called "The Royal Stuarts" by Allan Massie. A very rewarding read!
    SEMPER EADEM,
