What happened was, it was 1am and I was merrily cutting out fabric masks for the web shop while listening to the latest Burnley and Trowbridge livestream about their C18th bedgown sewalong. I love a good informative 'chat' with friends! And that's what these livestreams are to me. Then someone asked if Angela knew of any extant quilted bedgowns and a light switched on in my head. When Angela replied that she thought she did, but couldn't put her finger on it, I thought, 'Well, I definitely know where there are a couple - and I have photos of them!' So I paused the video, and the cutting, and hopped on the computer. A few minutes later Angela and I were poring over photos of extant bedgowns from the Fashion Museum Bath, that I viewed in the study rooms last year.
