Gown of Mary of Hapsburg from Hungary, 1510-25

Hungarian National Museum

Queen Mary’s gown is one of the earliest women’s gowns that has survived more or less in one piece, and a stunning example of early 16th century clothing. The dress is an example of a late Burgundian gown, with its high, belted waist and wide neckline, with a smocked ‘blouse’ underneath. The gown is made from green damask silk, and the neckline is trimmed in gold brocade. The shirt is made from a finely woven linen.
