The piece pokes fun at rich womeen playing housekeeper by using old servants' aprons to create an expensive dress. <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 />
