This delightful jacket would have been the perfect choice for Mary Macdowell, the first wife of George Houston of Johnstone Castle, to wear on a hot summer's day. Join Research Manager (Art) Rebecca Quinton to discover how the cut of the jacket was inspired by the sack-back gowns of the mid-1700s, what cord-quilting is and who Mary was.
