It is always great to get some feedback on past projects. This email was received this morning from the Curator of Textiles, National Museums Northern Ireland.
Many thanks for the dress that I collected for the museum yesterday. I enjoyed showing it off when I got back to work, everyone loves it!
The photo here doesn’t do it justice (it will be recorded properly by the museum’s photographer in the new year) but might give you some idea of how it will look on exhibition. This quick photo was taken in the textiles department store on the only mannequin I had free, obviously in the exhibition gallery it will be displayed on the right size figure with specially made support underneath to show the dress to best effect.
Thanks for doing such a great job, please pass on my thanks also to the dressmaker.
Best wishes for Christmas and New Year from all at NMNI.
