  1. 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. Even after hearing the glorious singing of Frida Leider on other records, Austral's triumphant voice remains in the mind." -Neville Cardus, Manchester Guardian, 1928. 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

  2. A young girl's smocked dress
    1997

    The Embroiderers' Guild of WA Inc

    In the 20th century, sewing was an integral part of the Educational Curriculum in schools throughout Australia and most girls learnt to smock. When these girls became mothers, this training was used to make items for the home and garments for the family. Hand embroidery was a pleasurable pastime and form of relaxation.      Post WWII, when jobs and resources were limited and scarce, there was neither the range nor variety of goods and those that were available, comparatively expensive.  ... more

  4. Miss Vere Chamberlain's day dress
    1898 - 1902

    Armidale Folk Museum

    This is a good example of an outfit worn by a comfortably off working class family in regional Australia - the Chamberlain's owned their own house in Armidale - and can give us an insight into life in Armidale in the late 19th century. The use of wool in this garment is a good indication of how cold Armidale winters could get. The dress is smart styled and may have been Vere's 'Sunday Best' (the clothes she would have worn ... more

    1920 - 1929

  7. Avocado green silk ensemble
    1890

    Temora Rural Museum

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

  8. 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

    1939 - 1945

    The Oaks Historical Society

    This costume is representative of a traditional Estonian folk dress from Tallinn. It is particularly unique because it was re-created during the second world war by an Estonian inmate of a displaced persons camp in Geislingen, Germany. * Ingenuity and the war time mentality of 'making do' with what is on hand * Helps to tell the story of what life was like in a displaced persons camp, with a mother wishing to provide as much of a normal existance ... more

    1925 - 1928
