My Day – a photo essay

Last night... Packing
Packed. Into the Car. Out of the car. Into the school library. Unpacked. Displayed. 
200 years ago – day dresses, spencer, ball gown, mourning gown, waistcoat, trousers, coat
Accessories: bonnets, turban, cravat, bodiced petticoat
20th Century – Canberra Centenary, Federation, what your great grandmother wore, evening wear
Accessories: hats, corset, gloves, chemise
Re-Packed. Into the Car. Out of the car. Into the house. Blogged. Not yet unpacked.

I gave a talk  about 'olden day' clothes to a class of 7-year olds at a local school. I took lots of dresses. I also took and wore an 1879 gown which will have a post soon.

ETA: 1879 gown post
