Stunning Embroidered Collar

Maker:Childs, Winifred Amy Date:1946 - 1948 This intricately embroidered crazy patchwork jacket was made by Winifred Childs for her eldest daughter, who wore it to a tennis club dance on her first date with her future husband. The jacketfollows the previous make do and mend era, as the crazy patchwork is made from dressmaking fabric scraps, and the lining is recycled from another garment. It was originally worn with a white net dance dress with red spots.

Richly worked in raised embroidery, showing the intricate detail of these beautiful designs in antique gold and silver threads.
