This group brings together objects examined by Janet Arnold for several of her 'Patterns of Fashion' books. Patterns of eight dresses spanning the period from around 1860 to the late 1920s appeared in 'Patterns of Fashion 1' first published in 1972. 'Patterns of Fashion 3' from 1985 contained a leather jerkin from the sixteenth century. The posthumously published 'Patterns of Fashion 4' includes one shirt and two smocks from the late sixteenth, early seventeenth century. Many of the objects are now quite fragile and should not be handled anymore unless absolutely necessary.
Following the recent advice from the government and Public Health England surrounding COVID-19, the Museum of London and the Museum of London Docklands will be closed to the public as of Thursday 19 March.
The health and wellbeing of our visitors, staff and community are of utmost importance to us and this decision is in response to increasing concerns surrounding COVID-19.
We will continue to closely review the advice from Public Health England and monitor the current situation of COVID-19 to keep people up to date on our plans.
