An exhibition about the history of home dressmaking.
All clothing and its creation have a story. This exhibition looks at the often over looked story of the home dressmaker and the equipment they used to make the job of creating the latest fashions more convenient and affordable to all.
Would you like to share your memories of custom handmade garments made by yourself, a relative or a friend?
Send us a picture of it being worn and a picture of the front cover of the pattern used, if you still have it.
Please include the year it was finished and your name, if you are happy to provide it. We will add this to our Community Cut and Create digital display, which will be in the Special Exhibition Gallery, as part of the exhibition.
Please e-mail your pictures to: firstname.lastname@example.org
