Whose Petticoat Is This?

Royal College of Art
Kensington Gore, London

The Roy Godden Lecture presented by the Textile Institute, London and South East England Section.

Rosie Taylor-Davies has worked in bespoke and commercial garment production and researching, designing and making costume for theatre, film and television. Her specialist field is the history of dress, with a particular interest in embroidery.

Discover the eighteenth century trades and crafts that contributed to this dress through practice-led techniques and academic investigation applied by Rosie. Rosie has analysed the fabrics and threads, reproduced detailed embroidery samples whilst making historical and genealogical enquiries to identify the possible wearer and estimate cost of manufacture.
