Hi, my name is Natalie Bramwell-Booth and I am a PhD student at the University of Southampton in the UK. Find out more about me here: Natalie Bramwell-Booth profile page. I have a background in dressmaking and have done a little historical costume making too, for the Tudor living history group at Hatfield House. I also have a BA degree in English literature, and an MA by Research in history, for which I examined the Bacton Altar Cloth embroidery and the ‘Rainbow’ Portrait of Elizabeth I. (You can read an abstract and download a PDF copy of my dissertation by clicking here).

Thank you for visiting, and I wish you all the best in your own explorations of historical dress and textiles.
