Lady in the Sacque

The apparition of this hag forms the story of the Tapestried Chamber, by Sir Walter Scott.

An old woman, whose dress was an old-fashioned gown, which ladies call a sacque; that is, a sort of robe completely loose in the body, but gathered into broad plaits upon the neck and shoulders.
