Next month a new exhibition from the Victoria & Albert Museum opens at the Bendigo Art Gallery in Victoria which I'm really looking forward to. I've already got a trip planned with a couple of friends, meeting the Adelaidean there. We compared our busy schedules and found a weekend that all 3 of us were free and it's booked in my diary. Yes, we'll be wearing costumes to see it, though one insists we wear all the layers, and not just the underpinnings. So now I've got to think about what costume it will be - an old or a new?
