  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. Toddler's smocked dress "Triple Ripple"
    1992

    The Embroiderers' Guild of WA Inc

    This smocked dress, known as a baby dress bishop top, was based on a pattern by Margaret Herzfeld in the 1990s for the "Australian Smocking and Embroidery" magazine and for smocking lessons. The name 'bishop top' comes from the clerical surplice, a roomy gown with a gathered neckline. It is an easy garment for a child to wear, because it is loose fitting and allowing for growth. Through her teaching and publications, Margaret helped to keep the old skills alive, adapted them, and ... more

  3. Topaz Silk Brocade Dress
    1845 - 1850

    Walcha and District Historical Society

    It is not possible to find the original wearer or wearers of this dress. It is significant both because of the exceptional quality of the fabric, and its excellent condition despite being at least 150 years old. It is also an example of the large 'bell-shaped' skirts fashionable from 1840-1865. After Miss Jean Crawford died (1892-1978), this garment was donated to the Walcha Historical Society by her niece in Armidale, NSW, in 1979. Jean was born at "Yarooga", Walcha Road, NSW and in later ... more

  4. 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.  Quality ... more

  5. A religious habit of the Sisters of Mercy
    1920 - 1950

    Institute of the Sisters of Mercy of Australia and Papua New Guinea. ( ISMAPNG)

    This assembly of garments constitutes the basic elements of the religious habit of the Sisters of Mercy.&nbsp; The <em>Mercy habit</em> was designed by the Foundress of the Sisters of Mercy, the Venerable Mother Catherine McAuley, in Dublin in 1831, and, with possibly only minor and inconspicuous alterations, was worn by all Sisters of Mercy until the middle of the twentieth century. The habit then began to be simplified and was finally discarded in favour of modern garb more suited to ... more

  6. Tartan skirt worn by Sarah Thomas
    1838 - 1878

    Tongarra Museum

    This skirt was made by Sarah Thomas en route to Australia from England in 1838.&nbsp; Sarah wore this skirt from its date of manufacture until her death in 1878. Sarah Thomas, nee Waller was born in Kent England in 1808. In 1828 she married William Thomas a carpenter, also from Kent. William, Sarah and the first four of their ten children immigrated to Australia in 1838. They lived at Log Bridge Farm, near Albion Park in NSW were they ran ... more

  7. 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

  8. De Bortoli cream silk 1920s wedding dress
    1928 - 1929

    De Bortoli Family

    This cream silk wedding dress was worn by Giuseppina (Pineta) Bisa for her marriage to Vittorio De Bortoli in 1929 at Bilbul, near Griffith, New South Wales. The dress was purchased from a French catalogue when Giuseppina was working as a maid for a wealthy family in Lyon in France, saving for her fare to Australia. After the wedding, Giuseppina altered the dress so it could be worn for evening occasions. She removed the sleeves and lace fringing, storing these ... more

  9. Gillett Sisters' Charleston dress
    1925 - 1928

    Albury Library Museum

    This 1920s dress was donated by Daintry Heywood and she was possibly the owner. It was worn by one of the three Gillett sisters and is an important part of a significant collection donated to Albury City. This black silk taffeta dress, described by the donor as a Charleston dress, was donated in 1968. The style is characteristic of the 1920s with its dropped waist and loose fitting design. But, it is the aesthetic quality of the embroidery and beading ... more

    1930 - 1945

    Manly Museum and Art Gallery

    This one piece costume belonged to Violet Smith (nee Armstrong) who during the 1920s and 1930s established herself as a champion athlete in swimming, hockey, golf, tennis, athletics and riding in Sydney. During her life Violet had a lifelong association with the Manly area and in particular the Manly Life Saving Club, where this swimsuit originates. This swimming costume is an original Manly Life Saving Club silk racing swimsuit from the 1930s. Manly Life Saving Club was established after a ... more

  11. 1930s Gertrude Mary Vile 'make-do-and-mend' dress
    1920 - 1930

    The Australian Museum of Clothing and Textiles

    The Gertrude Mary Vile Depression-era dress is a cream Fuji silk dress, with an Eton collar, a patch pocket and buttons down front, from the 1920s though patched into the 30s. Gertrude, who lived at Gosforth, a rural community about fourteen kilometres from Maitland, patched and darned what was initially a best dress into a house dress, and it survives Gertrude as a statement on the hardship the people of Maitland and Australia at large experienced during the Great Depression, ... more

  12. Prince Charming costume worn by Frederick Boyton Smith
    1928 - 1934

    Museum of the Riverina

    The Prince Charming costume worn by Frederick Boyton Smith is of Historic significance, being a good example of a Depression era children's costume. Surviving from a time when children's parents handmade costumes from oddments found around the home - for example, cardboard, crepe paper, cotton wool and scraps of fabric, it is rare to find children's costumes in this worn condition with all pieces intact, in this case, the hat, jacket, breeches, tights and shoes. The accompanying photograph depicting Frederick ... more
