I had a great night at the ‘Wearable Technologies’ late at the Science Museum. Substantial audiences turned out – twice – to see the talk and try on the clothes.
Many thanks to the Science Museum for the invite and for excellent support on the night.
I wore the convertible costume by Alice Bygrave. This version is actually the initial mock-up that Rachel and I made early in the project. It works just as well as the final version and fortuitously matches the other pieces in the costume (ie. blouse, jacket, waistcoat and bloomers). I don’t often wear it as it is not as lovely as the Dashing Tweeds version…. however I have broken the other costume from over use. The cords need repairing and replacing and rethreading.
The opportunity to try on convertible garments was well received
I enjoy it when people get into my research
