V&A Costume and Textiles Tour

This summer I finally realized a long-cherished dream: going to London and looking at positively every piece of 16th century clothing I could find. I spent a great deal of time at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, and also visited the Museum of London, British Museum and Costume Museum in Bath.

Here's a selection of the items I saw at the V&A Museum. The list is short, but will grow as I put more items online.

Margaret Laton's Jacket

17th c. sleeved stays

Two Elizabethan Smocks

16th C. Jewelry

Embroidered Coifs
