V&A Fashion Collection

The Victoria & Albert museum has a wonderful fashion collection that is constantly changing. In one showcase, you'll see Edwardian dresses. In the next, hand crocheted dresses from the 60's. The below photo doesn't do the dress justice, but everything is low lighted and no flash photography is allowed, so hard to capture a good photo. The dress is made up of hand crocheted flowers in bright colored yarn, some of which are three dimensional flowers. It must've taken hours to complete and I can't even crochet a doily!
