Sheila Jackson

Sheila Jackson, a designer in television for many years, was responsible for the costumes of the now classic series Upstairs, Downstairs. A former teacher she was ideally placed to offer advice on the costume problems which arise in all kinds of production, advice she shared in Costumes for the Stage (1978, 2001) and More Costumes for the Stage (1998).
