    London: V&A Museum and Hyde Park

    One of the things I was most excited to see in London was the V&A museum (Victorian and Albert Museum). Why? Because they have a good historical clothing collection. One of my obsessions since I was a child is historical clothing. For me historical clothing is dress-up for grown-ups, except people actually wore these clothes. And the historical dresses at the V&A museum are the real deal! Mid 19th century. The gathering and the ruffles on this dress are b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l! And there’s a good chance this dress was hand-sewn! Regency gown. And, no, as far as I know this isn’t a child’s dress, but an adult’s. Crazy! Can you imagine…
