Now, to get back to the game. When you were little, did you play with paper dolls? I know I did. On the back of the Bunty comic there was always a doll, with a selection of clothes and accessories, with their little tabs to attach them to the doll, all ready to be cut out. Well. 'Off the Hook' works on the same principle, but it is online.

Once you have created your 'look' you can save it and send it to your friends via Twitter, Facebook or email. Your look is also saved to the fashion gallery so others can see your creations!
The NML has a huge collection of clothes, textiles and accessories, many by famous designers, including Vivienne Westwood, Stella McCartney, Christian Dior, Yves St Laurent, Andre Courrèges and Dolce & Gabbana. Visit the 'Costume' section of the NML website to find out more information and pictures of some of the collection.
If you have an interest in design, textiles and needlework like I do, the collections that are held by museums are full of inspirations for your own work. Two of my favourite museums for their online resources for these areas are the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Both museums have such a large database of items from their collections available online you can spend quite a lot of time browsing them without having to leave your chair.
Why don't you pop over to the 'Off the Hook' website and have a go!
