Calico Smock - Smock
- The donor of this hand made calico smock, Mrs Joy Stevenson, was a student at Edmonton Technical College from 1949 to 1953. The smock was made in dress-making class as a task given to the girls aged 12 to 13 as part of an entrance examination. The girls were required to wear the smocks at all times and the different coloured smocking under the yoke showed what 'House' they were in. After three years all girls were placed with West End fashion houses. Mrs Stevenson chose soft furnishings as her trade and on leaving the college went to work for Liberty in Regents Street, where she made soft furnishings for the celebrities and rich of the era. During her career, she made soft furnishings for palaces, theatres and the Royal Albert Hall.
