Thank you for this! My boyfriend is an Essex lad, so maybe we can combine a visit to the relatives with a gawp at the exhibition. And the newsletter looks awesome!
So... I'm doing a PhD on early modern textiles and dress, and I had never heard of the Dress and Textile Specialist. Slightly embarrassing. Thanks for sharing! Also, I love the voluminous Victorian bathing suits - they remind me a little of modern Iranian women going swimming in chadors: both must be a serious impediment to the butterfly stroke!
Very glad you both enjoyed it! There seems to be some amazing exhibitions going on at some less well known museums. I feel a few day trips coming on!xx
These are fantastic! Love the sailor top one...
