Went to the Milestone Museum to see the Fashion on a Ration experience. Great talk, lovely fashion show, and a brilliant time making French knickers from "parachute" silk. Fran was a super instructor, friendly, knowledgable and had lots of tips I will go back!.

This museum is a homage to 20th century history in Hampshire with focus on industry, vehicles, shops and general life. Several decades are covered across a single floor, with the period 1930- 1950 being predominant although 60s-80s are covered. Look out for the working pub...More
