My new book: Making Edwardian Costumes for Women (2016)
Making Edwardian Costumes for Women is the title of my first book which will be published by The Crowood Press in February 2016. The book is a practical guide to creating authentic-looking Edwardian styles for women. It features 11 projects for readers to recreate based on garments and accessories from two museums in East Sussex; Worthing Museum and Art Gallery and Brighton Museum which is part of Royal Pavilion and Museums, Brighton & Hove. The book includes contextual research from a range of sources including journals such as Black and White, and Weldon's Ladies' Journal.
