1567 Mary Hill, Mrs MacWilliam by Master of the Countess of Warwick

I cannot find anything about her other than this portrait.

From katmax1 on Webshots.

Lady Mary's dress has several interesting features. The gauzy material, found on her sleeves and partlet, is either printed or embroidered with blackwork. She appears to be wearing a vest-overdress that includes the rolled sleeves. Her hands cover the probable location of a vee waistline, but there could be no separation there at all (rather unlikely). Her pendant suggests her dress has a girdle and vee waistline.
