  Broderie anglaise Tuesday 19 March 2002  
Hot fashion tips for this Spring and Summer. It is the return of embroidery. It comes in the form of floaty white shirts with broderie anglaise popping up everywhere.

Jenni talks to fashion reporter Patrick Swan and Angela Thompson, textile collector and lecturer for the Embroiderers' Guild about the re-emergence of broderie anglaise. They discuss how it is manufactured, how it has changed, how we should wear it and where we can buy it.
