2 Day Course – 6th & 7th August 2016
In the last decade of the nineteenth century, fashion changed dramatically every couple of years, some styles lasting hardly the length of a season. This course will cover the cut of the enormous sleeve shapes that were in fashion only between 1894 and 1896. Each student will draft patterns based on originals published at the time and will work toiles of three different styles of sleeves. Nineteenth century clothes from the Hopkins Collection will be available for close inspection.
