  1. Audrey Capuano's stars and stripes jumper
    1945 - 1946

    Australian National Maritime Museum

    This jumper reflects the experience of one Australian woman during World War II, who became an American War Bride and moved to the USA to start a new life and a family with her G.I. husband. The Stars and Stripes pattern reflects national identity and patriotism; a confirmation that she was prepared to leave home and family and become an American wife and mother. more

    1944

    Griffith War Memorial Museum

    This Australian Women's Land Army uniform represents a section of society that performed an incredibly important role in the war effort by maintaining the food supply for the armed forces in Australia and overseas and the general population on the home front. It also assists telling the personal story of Peggy Williams and the impact and reality of war on one of many thousands of Australian families at the time.

  4. Avocado green silk ensemble
    1890

    Temora Rural Museum

    This avocado green ensemble is a treasured heirloom of the Donaldson Family.&nbsp; This garment was made for Isabella Donaldson (nee Leaf) to wear to her brother&rsquo;s wedding in 1890.&nbsp; The long leg-of-mutton sleeves and straight, full-length A-line skirt are indicative of women&rsquo;s fashion throughout the 1890&rsquo;s suggesting that Isabella Donaldson kept well-informed of the latest fashion trends given the dress&rsquo; manufacture for a wedding in February of 1890.&nbsp; This garment is a fine example of the dressmaking service that was ... more

  5. Ball gown possibly worn by Ann Marsden
    1822

    Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences

    This 'Empire' style muslin gown and petticoat is one of a number of costumes in the Museum's collection that were worn by the Marsden family, and is believed to have been worn by Ann Marsden (1794 - 1885) to the Government House Ball in 1822. Ann was the daughter of Elizabeth Marsden and Reverend Samuel Marsden, a prominent figure in colonial New South Wales. On 1 January 1793, Marsden accepted the appointment as assistant to the chaplain of New South ... more

  6. Barn's Family dress
    1825 - 1830

    Illawarra Historical Society

    This is an important and charming printed cotton dress that was worn by a female member of the Barnes family from Lancashire, England. The family believed the dress was worn to Queen Victoria's coronation procession in 1837. The dress, however, dates earlier than this and is likely to have been the woman's best dress from about 1825-1830. The dress was no doubt considered special to be worn for such an occasion. It appears to have been made by an accomplished ... more

  7. Beaded dress made by Miss Una Simpson
    1925 - 1926

    Museum of the Riverina

    This dress is of historic and aesthetic significance, and is one of only a handful of 1920s dresses in the Museum's collection. Even though we know little of the dressmaker Miss Una Simpson, the bead-work and design is exceptional. It is a visible reminder of the fashion trends of the 1920s, a period in fashion history when the formality of the Edwardian period relaxed and the excitement of 'modernity' clashed head-on to create a legacy of truly unique garments. This ... more

    1885 - 1890

    Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences

    This corset is part of the much larger Berlei Collection, which contains underwear and corsetry from 1869 to 1980s.

The Berlei Collection reflects the changing nature of women's fashion in Australia, and represents the history of a highly successful Australian company and all ... more

The bodice is part of the extensive Rouse Hill House &amp; Farm museum collection - the survivors of several generations of Rouse and Terry family from 1870 until the early 1990s - men's, women's, children's and even dolls' clothes. One of the oldest continually occupied houses in Australia, Rouse Hill House ... more

  13. Bessie Rouse's crimson silk outfit
    1874 - 1876

    Sydney Living Museums

    This crimson bodice was probably worn by Bessie Rouse as an elegant presentation robe, possibly before she was married to Edwin Stephen Rouse in 1874. Bessie remained the influential mistress of Rouse Hill House from her marriage until 1924. Her outfit does not show extensive signs of wear although Bessie appears to have moved the red glass buttons across 30mm to allow for an expanding waistline. This may possibly relate to her two pregnancies. Presentation robes often boasted extravagant trained ... more

  14. Bikini and beach jacket worn by Maureen Cooke
    1944

    Port Macquarie Historical Society

    This outfit is the oldest in Maureen Cooke's extensive private collection, most of which records in detail her career as a fashion designer and seamstress during the 1950s to 1970s. This beach outfit made in 1944 by Maureen at the age of fourteen is all that remains of her earlier work. It shows that even then Maureen was destined to bigger and better things in the fashion world. It is bold and makes a statement. Wearing a two-piece swimsuit on ... more

  15. Black Victorian silk jacquard waistcoat with black lace
    1880 - 1885

    Private collectors

    This beautiful and unusual Jacquard is believed to have belonged to Mary Bozzum Kennedy (Hume), a member of the Hume and related pioneering Australian families, or to her daughter, and is a treasured family heirloom.

  16. Black dress worn by Mrs Clara Boyton
    1910 - 1912

    Museum of the Riverina

    This dress is of historic significance. While ladies of the Victorian (and Edwardian) periods are often stereotyped as being svelte, retaining their small waistlines throughout their lives, with the aid of corsetry, this garment is a lovely example showing the transition of shape of a real Victorian. By the second decade of the 20th century (between 1910 and 1915) the differences between Victorian and Edwardian clothing became pronounced. The full flowing skirt of the 19th century evolved into a slim ... more

  17. Black dress worn by Mrs Jane Crain
    1902 - 1910

    Museum of the Riverina

    This black dress worn by 'Granny' Jane Crain can be viewed as an example of epitomising the hard-working, (often) tough, and industrious pioneering women who helped shape the fledgling township of Wagga Wagga (and the Riverina district). When properly fitted on a mannequin, it belies some of the character of the wearer. It is easy to imagine 'Granny' Crain as being a lady of small stature, with a ramrod straight back, being both upright and forthright in character and bearing. ... more

  18. Black silk evening dress
    1920 - 1929

    Private collectors

    This sleeveless, black silk sheath evening gown, with asymmetrical beading, flared skirt and scalloped hem belonged to Wendy Hucker (nee O&rsquo;Donnell)&rsquo;s mother Hylda Maria Sophia Australia Adelskold, and was presumably worn in the 1920s or early 30s.

She married Charles Joseph O&rsquo;Donnell, a farmer, and bore nine children- Gustaf, Joan, Claes, John, Charles, Esther, Peter, Paul and Wendy. &ldquo;Hylda and Charlie [as he was affectionately known] were real people, of whom ... more

  19. Blacker Twins' purple blouses
    1905 - 1912

    Quirindi and District Historical Society

    Historic, aesthetic and social significance because of the rarity of a pair of garments worn by twins. The different trimmings on the blouses indicates that the women were conscious of a need to tell them apart. They are associated with a family with a long connection with the Quirindi district with descendants who are still in the Quirindi community. These attractive blouses were for fashionable occasions. The embroidered floral trim shows it was for special occasions and not for every ... more

  20. Blue silk wedding dress
    1840 - 1843

    Sydney Living Museums

    This charming hand stitched wedding gown is a unique and fine example of a provenanced Australian dress. It was worn by Margaret Drummond Gentle for her wedding to the Rev. William Grant in Perthshire, Scotland in June 1845 and then passed to Margaret Ross Steel by Miss Barbara Grant, a daughter of the original owner. A full length seated photograph by Alma Studio of Margaret Steel wearing the dress in about 1938 is in the Meroogal collection. The silk is ... more

  21. Blundell day dress
    1875 - 1876

    Merimbula Old School Museum

    The dress is a well preserved example of Australian bespoke dressmaking during the late 19th century and is an increasingly rare example of a female day dress of the era. The style and careful disposition of the two patterned fabrics reflects the work of an accomplished dressmaker. Although evening and special occasion costumes are well represented in public collections around the nation, day dresses of the era have not survived to the same extent in moveable cultural heritage collections.&nbsp; The ... more

  22. Bodice and bolero jacket over-bodice
    1880 - 1900

    Stanton Library

    The bodice and bolero jacket over-bodice are of rare, interpretative historic and social significance. These well-tailored garments made in Australia hold historic significance as evidence of the dressmaking skills accessible in the colony during the second half of the nineteenth century and the importance placed on clothing in a society where the social position of women was judged by their dress, personal behaviour and language. As bespoke mourning apparel made from silk, they are examples of the importance of appearance, ... more

  23. Boy's black velveteen suit
    1928 - 1930

    Griffith Pioneer Park Museum

    This boy's suit is one of three black velveteen suits made in the 1920s for Ori, Roy and Leo Pastega, the sons of an Italian migrant family. The suits were made by the boys' mother Luigia Pastega. The skills required to produce such garments were attained by Luigia as a young girl in Italy. Many Italian women excelled in such fine work, including the making of clothing, lace, knitting and embroidery. The Pastega's emigrated from northern Italy and settled in ... more

  24. Boy's outfit worn by William Nicholas Zell
    1892 - 1893

    Gilgandra Museum and Historical Society

    This garmet is important as an example of clothing that has been passed down through the years since the early 1890's by the Zell Family. It was machine sewn on a Singer sewing machine purchased in 1890 by the Zell Family. This family have been innovative farmers in the Tooraweenah/Gilgandra district since the 1880's. more
