An evocative historical novel set against the rich tapestry of the silk trade in London during the 1760s.

1768, London. As a foundling who rose from poverty and now runs her own successful dressmaking business in the heart of society London, Miss Charlotte is a remarkable woman, admired by many. She has no need, nor desire, to marry. The people she values most are her friend Anna, her recently-found sister Louisa and nephew Peter. She feels herself fortunate, and should be content with what she has. But something is missing. A small piece of rare silk discovered in a bundle of scraps at auction triggers a curious sense of familiarity, and prompts her to unpick a past filled with extraordinary secrets and revelations ... The Dressmaker of Draper’s Lane revisits the opulence and extravagance of the London silk trade in the mid-18th century which Liz Trenow wrote about in her previous bestselling novel, The Silk Weaver.

'Liz Trenow conjures up atmosphere concisely and brilliantly, with not a spare word to be found.'
