Creating historical costume from old photographs

The next lunchtime talk at the Royal Cornwall Museum during Heart of Conflict (our exhibition on Cornwall during World War One) will throw a spotlight on clothing worn then.
Curator Sarah Lloyd-Durrant will be on hand to show you photographs of women from the first world war, alongside freelance costume maker Lorna Kinsey-Jones who will talk about how she made replica costume using the Museum's photographic collection as evidence.
Two costumes made by Lorna are on show at the exhibition which is at the Royal Cornwall Museum until the end of June.
