  1. 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 ... more

  8. Summer evening gown
    1940 - 1945

    The Australian Museum of Clothing and Textiles

     This dress is an excellent example of the re- use of materials in a time of scarcity and hardship. It is believed that the fabric was donated by a textile manufacturing firm, possibly from the Hunter Valley, to the Red Cross. They then decide where best to send their donations and parceled it off to Papua New Guinea, to the Australian Army Nurses working there.

  9. Black dress worn by Mrs Clara Boyton

    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

    1869

    Raymond Terrace Historical Society

    The significant of this dress is its simplicity. It is not a grand garment, it is not a lavish design. It is a dress an 18 year old girl made to marry her future husband.
