Lent by Elizabeth Eggleston

Gerald McCann studied at the Royal College of Art and, like other RCA graduates, played an influential role in the development of the UK fashion industry. He designed a dress similar to this one as a paper pattern for Butterick. Paper patterns meant that anyone could wear the latest fashions for the price of a couple of yards of fabric.
