Say It With Hexies

© Norfolk Museums Service
This dressing gown was made during World War One by a Mother for her son.
He was convalescing from injuries he received in the war.

It is made from silk hexagonal patchwork, the fabric dates from the 1890's.
The notes say the donor was a lady of great wealth, great energy and noted eccentricity; she was also an artist in an amateur capacity.
