Dress of Marie de Medici
cotton smock is based on pattern of linen smock said to have
belonged to Mary, Queen of Scots, c. 1575-85 (Cougton Court,
Alcester, The National trust). The pattern is published by
Janet Arnold in Pattern of Fashion IV (page 115). The lower edge is much
longer on the sides that the middle part. This is adjusted when
a corset is putted on.
