After a short walk I was at the Fashion and Textile Museum to see the Liberty in Fashion exhibition.
The exhibition worked through time and I particularly liked the dresses from there 1910s, 20s and 30s (very Downton Abbey).
This child's dress from the 1930s with beautiful smocking is so similar to those still worn by little girls today.
It then moved though the 1940s and 50s.
I remember wearing dresses similar to these of the 1970s, especially the one on the seated mannequin at the front!
Although I never had anything as bright as this 1960s number!
By the time I had walked back up to the Thames the sun was coming out so I decided to take a river bus from Tower Hill up to the Embankment.
Mum had bought me the ticket back in April and I really enjoyed it - the cast of children were amazingly talented, the set was stunning and to see a child launched into space by her pigtails was very clever (no children were injured!).
I can highly recommend both the Liberty exhibition and Matilda - all in all a very good day, and I didn't get wet!
