Description
This is a slide show depicting late Elizabethan / early Stuart embroidered jackets. In 2010, Amie went to Great Britain with an embroidery study group, which was allowed access to 12 extant jackets from museums including the Museum of London, Victoria & Albert Museum, the Costume Museum of Bath, the Maidstone Museum, the Museum of Nottingham, and the Gallery of Costume at Platt Hall. Photos of the jackets will highlight details of construction and embroidery. Photos will be shown for the lecture, but cannot be posted electronically or distributed. Handouts with information will be provided but no photos.
