Amazing Diary


Found out about this Diary on the blog True Up. It is in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum. It was kept by Barbara Johnson, the daughter of an English Reverend. The diary consists of the fabrics she used and the details of the garments she constructed out of them. She meticulously cataloged her dressmaking from age 8 into her 80's from 1738-1825. What an amazing piece of history!
