Seamstress Details
Mrs Mary Seccombe 1925 – 2016

Mary was born and brought up in Manchester.
She attended Manchester Municipal School of Art in 1942 and her interest in dress design and dressmaking developed from that.
Whilst she made most of her own clothes, she also spent some time teaching dressmaking in Adult Education classes while she lived in London in the 1960s and 70s, an experience she fondly remembered.
Her interest in clothes and fashion was important to her and she continued to enjoy and care for the garments she had made.
Mary lived in Tenbury Wells for the last twenty-one years.
Her two sons are delighted to be able to donate to Oxfam so many items in her name.
