Dressing up - a preview!

We have commissioned some costumes for trying on in the new museum, based on items in the collection. 

One of the dresses is a really unusual Victorian wedding dress (showing that wedding dresses were not all white).

Our dress-up version has cheats so that it can be easily fastened to be worn over the top of ordinary clothing (rather than a corset!).  It still needs the blue braid and fringing adding to it, but we thought you might like to see the work in progress.
