  1. 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

    1878 - 1900

    Griffith Pioneer Park Museum

    This bustle-style skirt was made and worn in the late 1870s by Ellen Eleanore Sharam, nee Wennerbom.  With its deep flounce and black, beaded braid, the skirt is a fine example of the elegance of the era and the importance of decoration on clothing, even for day wear.

    1895

    Australian National Maritime Museum

  5. Florence Austral red & black blouse
    1920 - 1930

    The Australian Museum of Clothing and Textiles

    "The Waters of the Rhine seem to mount high, and over all rides the triumphant voice of Florence Austral as Brunnhilde. Her singing can justly be called queenly.

Florence Austral was a prominent figure in the opera world in the early 20th Century.  It was in 1914 that Austral won first place in two voice catagories ... more

  6. Woman's dust coat dress
    1880 - 1890

    Gulgong Pioneers Museum

    This is an important example of occupational or travel dress. Unostenatious garments, such as this one, can be overlooked in collections, but this garment is quite rare. Sometimes called a 'duster' they are quite common in American mail order catalogues. They were worn over smart clothes to protect from dust or weather. The fastening right down the front, to the absolute bottom of the hem, suggests the wearer intended to eliminate any speck of dust collecting on her more expensive ... more
