1780-1781. Cream brocaded silk woven with clusters of flowers in pinks and greens. Worn by Mary Mcdowell, daughter of William Mcdowall of Castle Semple. In 1779 Mary married George Houston of Johnstone Castle, a local landowner and textile industrialist. The large size of the closed bodice suggests that it may have been worn while Mary was pregnant. .NO, I THINK IT IS REALLY PLUS SIZE.
