Cotton Couture at Manchester Art Gallery


Over the Easter holidays we decided to have a day trip to Manchester. I used to live there (for about a year after university) and I love the place. We popped into Manchester Art Gallery and coincidentally they had a wonderful exhibition called Cotton Couture, which is perfect to share with you guys! Such beautiful dresses and lots of sewing inspiration!

I’m absolutely not sorry for such a photo-heavy post…



This next dress was my favourite. I love the style, but also the fabric. I think I’m going to have to raid my vintage pattern stash or have a look on Pinterest for a similar pattern!

Love this!

Love this!

Which of these lovely dresses is your favourite? Do you look to vintage styles for your sewing inspiration?
