Pictured: Project manager Katy England admires a patchwork dress called Piece by Piece by Sylvie Lefebvre, with The Heirloom's Tale patchwork cover that inspired it in the background, on display for the Fashioning Our World exhibition at The Salisbury Museum, Wilts.<br />
<br />
The dress was made to showcase the patchwork pattern called a double wedding ring which was a type of quilt traditionally given to newlywed couples with the interlocking rings seen as a symbol of love and romance. All of the material used for the patchwork is from leftover university projects or donated fabrics.<br />
<br />
Fashioning Our World aims to make use of The Salisbury Museum's extensive fashion collection of over 3,500 items dating from the last 300 years with many pieces using offcuts and spare fabrics from the archive. <br />
<br />
The exhibition is on display from this Saturday the 10th of February until the 12th of May. <br />
