Greetings to my followers. Time is passing so quickly this year and as always I have been very busy!
I have also been creating a lot of clothing for my customers and travelling which has prevented me from updating my blog for a while.
A few weeks ago I was delighted to do my first ever talk on the subject of 'What Jane Wore' for a special event by PandP Tours. I talked about what Jane Austen actually wore through descriptions in her letters and other primary evidence. I also showed original items from my collection.
