A Survey of Late 16th / Early 17th Century Embroidered Jackets

Abstract

Images of English embroidered jackets are available online and in print, but to date no one has published a comparative study of these jackets or a reference book of the shapes. In this document, I have gathered information about twenty-five late 16th / early 17th century jackets and jacket fragments to compare the shapes, embroidery patterns and construction details.

This manuscript was first published in 2013 as The Compleat Anachronistic, Issue No. 160. Updated in July 2014.
