Definitely accessible by denizens of the UK. Not sure about how accessible it is to those beyond Old Blighty's shores.

It's a rather smashing archive of some old TV programmes & documents about what we wore. Includes some true gems. My favourites include the 'Clothes That Count' broadcast in the 60's showing how to make various items of clothing. Example: the shirt waister http://www.bbc.co.uk/archive/whatwewore/5601.shtml

I'm of a generation to remember the 80s series "The Clothes Show" with Jeff Banks. It was fabulous stuff. http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/classic/clothesshow/

Mile high shoulder pads, fabric colors that literally screamed, "Look at me!" and oh yes, polyester leisure suits. Barry Gibb and the boys... Do I really want to remember??

Now Miss Fairchild, there is nothing wrong with colors that sear your eyeballs.

Cause you know, if there was, I'd be nekkid.

Sew Ducky, you're too funny. But you want to hear something weird? Just after I logged out of PR to look at other stuff online, I noticed Robin Gibb passed away at 62. Had to come back and say so... (neenah neenah neenah)
