A day of starting points and revelations at the Castle study centre – defining what the research should encompass is always an exciting time – the idea of the fold in the title means that almost anything can be a part of my research – today has uncovered the overall which led to the pocket – needle cases given away in hotels – waist coats construction – over sleeves -  fans, specifically ones created cheaply in paper for advertising the etiquette of napkins – travelling porte folio’s – the pleat – 1820s fashion plates from Paris – photographs of rural workers from Norfolk - how shirts are folded - more sample books -  I’m slowly becoming acclimatised to the cataloguing system and the unique numbers attached to each object in the museum to be able to find examples of these to look at.
