Lady Clapham offers a fine example of both formal and informal dress for a wealthy woman in the 1690s (Museum # T.846 to Y-1974). Her formal outfit includes a mantua (gown) & petticoat, while her informal dress is represented by the nightgown (a dressing gown rather than a garment worn to bed) and petticoat. Accessories such as the stockings, cap and chemise (a body garment) are very valuable since very few items from such an early period survive. V T.846B-1974

This beautiful, shiny Russian spiral rope necklace is sophisticated and would look lovely with both formal and informal dress. Russian spiral is sometimes described as a serpentine design because of its winding pattern. It is one of my favourite beadweaving stitches as the appearance of the piece can be varied hugely by using different types and sizes of beads. Here I have used tiny (size 11) silver-lined gold seed beads, which are very sparkly, around larger (size 8) seed beads in two…

From the V&A. Lord Clapham offers a fine example of both formal and informal dress for a gentleman in the 1690s. His formal outfit includes a coat, waistcoat and breeches, while his informal dress is represented by the nightgown. Accessories such as the stockings, stock (a form of stiff, close-fitting neckcloth) and gloves are very valuable since very few items from this early period survive in museum collections.

"This garment represents an 18th-century style of jacket known as a Brunswick. A shortened version of the formal sack-back dress, the Brunswick became popular in the 1760s for travelling and informal dress. Although this example has a hood, the very fine watered silk suggests it was intended for casual day wear rather than the rigours of 18th-century travel. Some variations have wrist-length sleeves, and buttons at the elbow of this jacket indicate that it might once have had removable…
