In Stitches: Costume Exhibition At The Royal Shakespeare Theatre

Calling all budding seamstresses who love a good costume and a whole lot of literature! In Stitches, is a new exhibition at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon that boasts 35 hand-crafted pieces.

Costumes worn by the likes of Judi Dench, Juliet Stevenson and David Tennant are on show from 20 April and each illustrates the incredible craftsmanship involved.

Think tailoring, dyeing, printing, leatherwork, beading, corsetry, millinery and jewellery making. Take a sneaky peak in our gallery below and if you're ALL about becoming the queen of crafts get yourself to Stratford and embrace it all.

To coincide with In Stitches the RSC will launch a Made in Stratford Appeal, which aims to raise £1million.
