About the Author
Nancy Bradfield was an advisor to the National Trust on some of their collections and a lecturer on the History of Costume at Gloucester College of Art. The majority of research has been done in private collections and has culminated in this remarkably fine set of highly skilled, well documented drawings and detailed studies of dresses and accessories, only a handful of which have ever been seen in public.
