Description
Sun dress, c.1930. White cotton with embroidery on bodice and around bottom of skirt. Three quarter length sleeves, loose open back. Full calf length skirt. The open weave cotton material has embroidery in the art deco style. The bodice is hand sewn together along the embroidery lines, with a round neckline and a back that drapes open in a low hanging V shape. The sleeves have more of the same embroidery at the cuffs. The back closure, just to the right of the centre, begins with an overlapping snap and two hooks and eyes at the waist. It continues with hooks and eyes to below the waist. The skirt is machine sewn from one panel, heavily gathered all around the waist except for a section in the centre back. It continues until it reaches calf length, and ends with embroidery at the hem.

Description
Woman's suit, c.1909-1912. White cotton with white embroidery. Jacket with collar and long sleeves, and flared ankle length skirt. The jacket has a large rolled collar covered in hand worked white floral embroidery with a scalloped edge. This embroidery continues down the edges of the centre front opening, and around the jacket hem. The front of the jacket has princess seaming on either side, and the back is made of one piece above the waist. Below, there are three inserted panels creating a peplum. The front closes with a single white button and thread loop at waist level. All the seams on the front and back shaping are flat felled; the others are left unfinished. The skirt waistband is simply folded over and basted into place. It has nine gores, and an opening at the front left with six snaps. The white embroidery goes around hem, and comes halfway up the centre front. The hem is machine sewn, and the seams are left unfinished.

Description
Day dress, c. 1919. White cotton buratto lace. Mid-calf length, round neck, quarter length sleeves. This dress echoes the 1910s with its lace, natural waistline, and slightly poufed front; however, it also looks toward the 1920s with its straight cut and minimal shaping. The bodice has a row of embroidery going vertically down each side front. There is a scalloped closure on left front, which opens with a double row of snaps. On the bodice back, the two embroidery panels come together in a stepped V pattern, and the rest of the back is embroidered. Shaping in the bodice comes from side seams that angle toward the side back, creating more volume in the bodice front. The shoulder seams are also cut further back instead of sitting right on top of the shoulder. Each sleeve extends out of the bodice in kimono style, banded at the upper arm with a band of thicker weave and heavier weight white cotton fabric. Beneath this, the waistband pattern can be seen again: a band of embroidery bordered by lace. At the bottom of each sleeve there is one more band of lace. The waistline comes straight down from the square bodice; it consists of an embroidered panel bordered horizontally by two bands of lace. The bottom lace band is reinforced by a cotton tape on the inside. Gathered at the waist, the skirt has no other shaping. It is unadorned for the first two thirds, and then embroidery gradually reaches a scalloped lace hem. The dress is made almost entirely of buratto lace, which uses a foundation of twined weave fabric with the threads uniformly loose to produce a net-like base for embroidery. It is machine sewn, mainly with french seams, and unlined.

Wedding dress, c.1909-1910. White cotton crepe with hand embroidery. Short bodice with pin tucks, slight pouf, and three quarter sleeves. Pleated ankle length column skirt. The bodice has a small lace edged V neck, and three pin tucks on each shoulder. Two of the pin tucks angle inwards and continue to the waistline. Between the tucks the bodice is covered with hand worked floral and ribbon themed embroidery. It is gathered at the waistband, creating a slight puff reminiscent of the recently out of fashion pouter pigeon bodice. The back of the bodice has three vertical pin tucks that extend from the shoulder to the waistband on either side of the centre back button closure, with thread covered buttons. There is a slight gather between the pin tucks and side back seams, from the panel under each arm. The sleeves are three quarters in length. They have turned up cuffs topped with embroidery and edged with the same lace as seen on the collar. The skirt has a sailor front opening with six thread covered buttons on either side of a centre front panel. Just past hip level, there are two accordion pleats on either side of the panel. There is a gore on each side and one on the back that flare out slightly; each has the floral and ribbon embroidery. On the back gore, there is a pleat on either side at calf level. The hem is ankle length.

Description
Woman's suit, c.1892. White linen with hand worked embroidery. High collar, long full sleeves, flared floor length skirt, puffed bodice front, long ties in bodice back. The high collar has point de gaze lace edging, and is covered in hand worked floral embroidery. Down the centre front of the bodice there are four tiny pin tucks. There is more floral embroidery on either side front, and a large tuck on either side of that covering the shoulder seams and angling slightly towards centre front. The tucks continue down the bodice back on the same way. On the top back of the bodice there are seven more tiny pin tucks on either side. Down the centre back there is an opening with five white pearl buttons. At the bodice back bottom there is some gathering covered with a long tie on each side. These may have been used to tie around the front, which would otherwise hang open around the waist. The sleeves have some volume, although they lack the large leg o' mutton cap. They are gathered at the cuff, which has a band of floral embroidery and is edged in point de gaze lace. The separate skirt has a grosgrain waistband and opens down the centre back with four snaps and a hook and eye at the top. There are five gores, with floral embroidery down the centre front. The dress is unlined, and the seams are finished with a whip-stitch.

Description
Bodice and underskirt, c.1895. Black wool bodice, black silk taffeta underskirt. Black satin trim, leg o' mutton sleeves, standing collar, embroidery on bodice. At the back of the standing collar there is a bow in satin ribbon. At the front of the bodice, there is a section of gathered fabric at either side of the centre front closure decorated with black floral embroidery. At the edge of the right front there is a pleated ruffle of satin ribbon. The embroidered section is also bordered by a satin ribbon on each side. The sleeves are heavily gathered at the sleeve cap, creating large leg o' mutton sleeves. They taper down to the wrists, which also have some of the same embroidery as the centre front bodice, just before the cuffs. The cuffs do not have an opening. At the back of the bodice, there is no decoration. The waistband consists of a twisted satin ribbon with a bow at centre front and centre back. Inside, the bodice is lined with beige linen. It has eight bones one the front and back. The underskirt is made of undecorated lightweight silk taffeta, and may be a petticoat instead of an underskirt. It has a grosgrain waistband with built in stays, five gores, and one dart for shaping. It does not close at its regular opening, but rather folds over to close via a snap further along the waistband.

At the centre front it dips down in a square neckline, with a beaded panel starting at the bottom of the square. It is made up of back and white glass beads in a diamond pattern on a black net background. The panel is in a shield shape. The sleeves are loose fitting, with black floss embroidery around the cuffs in a looping pattern. At the bottom of the bodice there is a sash that covers the pleats and gathers, and extends on the left side where it may have been tied. The sash also closes with a snap, one on the sash ties and two more at the point where they close on the bodice. There are also snaps on the left shoulder. Inside, there is a black china silk lining that closes at the centre front with hooks and eyes.

Description
Dress, c.1925-1929. Navy satin rayon. Straight cut, long sleeves, round neckline, belt, and embroidery applique. Slightly flared knee length skirt, straps hang from shoulders. There is no collar on the rounded neckline. There is a small placket closure with a snap at the left shoulder. Coming from each shoulder seam is a one inch hanging strap. It extends to the dropped waist where there is a band of art deco style embroidery appliqued to the dress. It is brightly coloured in brown, orange, yellow, blue, and navy blue. The straps are tacked down here, with three pleats hanging from the ends. A few inches above the embroidery there are thin waistband sashes sewn into the side seams. The sleeves are gathered into cuffs trimmed with embroidered ribbon in blue, pink and white on a black velvet background. It does not match the design of the band across the front. There are self fabric ties on the sleeve ends, tied at their base, but no opening in the cuff. Attached at the dropped waistline, the skirt is flared slightly in one panel, using a semi-circular flounce. The back of the dress is all one piece, without any shaping and without a break at the waistline. There is a six inch hem at the back and a small double fold at the front. Most seams are finished with pinking. A price tag on tie on left sleeve reads on one side: "18 / 139[or 137]" and on the other side: "fgg / 14.00[crossed out] / $12.00/8." This may mean it is a size eight, selling for $12.00 (marked down from $14.00).

Description
Dress, c.1925-1929. Green silk chiffon. Straight cut, button trim, lace collar and cuffs with embroidery, long sleeves, yoke above pleated and ruched knee length skirt. This dress is good example of the ever shorter and more transparent clothing that was being worn by rebellious young women toward the end of the 1920s. The round neckline has a rolled collar of beige lace that ends a few inches over the shoulders. At the front, it has abstract floral embroidery in blue, green, pink, and black. At the centre front of the neckline there is a bound slit with three self bound round buttons on either side. They close with thread loops from the right side that go around each left button. The sleeves flare out slightly into a bishop sleeve gathered to the cuff. They have the same type of embroidered lace on the cuff as on the collar. At the centre front of the bodice, there is a rectangular panel appliquéd with gold top stitching. Directly beneath, there is a yoke that circles around the back and comes up to a point at centre front. On either side of a dropped waist, there is a vertical row of three self covered round buttons with three thread eyes, creating a small fold in the fabric. The skirt is a plain tube with a front and back panel, and another panel that hangs on top extending to the side backs. This top panel is ruched with three lines of gathering at the centre front, and it is permanently pleated on either side of the ruching to the side backs. The ruched panel dips down slightly in a curve, and the whole panel is finished with a zig-zag stitch.

Description
Bodice, c.1900. Black silk taffeta. Trimmed with velvet, net, sequins, beads, and embroidered applique. Leg o' mutton sleeves, high collar. Skirt: BV985.3515.1. The entire bodice is black, and the net seems to come pre-embroidered with sequins and beads. The high collar is covered with the embroidered net, and edged with velvet on the top. On the centre front of the bodice, there is a different net with strips of velvet that run horizontally at intervals. The lace is gathered at the neckline and at the waistline to create a puff at the bodice front. Hanging from each shoulder with the corner pointing to the elbow is a square of sequin and bead embroidered net, edged with a strip of velvet. Another strip of velvet attaches to that one with a faggoted stitch. The sleeves are set in at the armscye, but gradually come out to huge pleated puffs at the elbows. They then taper back to the wrists, where there is a small split. Here a flounce of net hangs, trimmed with a ruffle of black taffeta. On the outside of the cuffs, there is an applique of maple leaf embroidery. At the waist, which comes to a slight point at the centre front, there is a belt of three velvet strips. At the centre back, there are three triangle shaped formations of bead on a metal frame, one on each velvet strip. There are six of these at centre front (one on each side of the hook and eye closure) and there are two on each side, where the strips are gathered slightly on top of each other. Inside, the bodice is lined with brown, white, and green striped taffeta. There are fifteen feather bones on the sides and back. The bodice closes up the centre front with hooks and eyes, and the collar wraps around the back to close there with two hooks and eyes.

Dress, c.1910. Black satin silk, ivory lace yoke. High collar, three quarter length sleeves, black lace, embroidery, and ruffle trim, floor length with an overskirt. The high lace collar has stays, and it continues into a yoke on the front and back. The centre front and back bodice beneath this have gathered panels, in a V shape on the back. Beneath this on the front, there are two rectangles joined by a faggoting stitch. On either side there are four round black velvet buttons, and on either side of that there is a black ruffle that extends over the shoulders to the back waist. Attached to the ruffle is a band of black lace, and on centre front below the rectangles there is a large appliquéd piece of black embroidered lace. The sleeves are fairly fitted. They are ruched and taper down to a slightly more fitted cuff, edged with gathered ribbon and a band of lace. The waist is at natural height, without any cinching. It is defined by a black ruffle on either side and a band of lace at the front and back. At centre back there is a black appliqué that is the same as the one on top of the waist at centre front. There are also three pin tucks at either side of the centre back, extending from the appliqué on the overskirt. At the centre front of the overskirt, there is a black ruffle that extends to its hem. At the hem, the ruffle curves down on either side front and angles into two square shapes at either side back. The underskirt has six gores; at calf level, the main dress fabric is attached. The bodice closes up the centre back with hooks and eyes. Beneath there is also a lining that closes separately with hooks and eyes at the centre back. It has seven featherbones encircling the top of the waist. The overskirt, underskirt, and waistband close separately with hooks and eyes at the back left.

Description
Dress, c.1910-1913. Cotton lawn print in floral and checkered, with chiffon yoke, lace, and mauve satin silk waistband. Long tiered skirt, long sleeves, round neckline. The cotton lawn fabric has a white background with vertical stripes of black and white checkers; purple flowers with green stems intertwine around the vertical checkers. The neckline rounds into a slight V shape with a yoke of ivory chiffon on top of lace, which extends to the waistband. On the front and back right and left side of the bodice, there is a tab extending over the waistband from the bodice fabric, edged in lace. The bottom of the bodice is gathered to add some volume. The bodice is also open around the shoulders, edged with lace. There is a section of the main fabric underneath that connects to the lining. The sleeves are full length, with some volume. The cuff begins halfway down the forearm with a gathered lace ruffle. The cuff section is narrower, and ends with three snaps at the wrist and another lace ruffle. At the waist, there is a gathered mauve satin silk waistband, tacked on to the dress. The skirt is attached underneath in two tiers. The overskirt, attached to the bodice, has two somewhat flared gores and one godet on the right side seam from just above the knee to the calf. It also ends at the calf, and just above the hem there is a tiny band of drawn thread work embroidery. The bottom tier is attached to the skirt lining under the top hem; it is made up of four gores, all gathered. The lining to the dress is done in ivory china silk, and it extends into the sleeves. In the bodice lining, there are four bones to hold its shape: on in the centre front and back, and one on each side. There are six panels in the back and four in the front, all finished with flat felled seams. The centre front closes with hook and eyes, and the waistband is secured on top with snaps and a hook and eye; the left bodice tab is secured to the waistband with two snaps. The skirt lining is also china silk, closing down the left side front with snaps. The skirt also has a left side opening that closes with snaps. In each underarm there is a dress shield to protect the dress from perspiration. They each read: "Style 100 Trade Mark OMO. E. Y. 2. Odorless. No Rubber. Soak in cold soap suds, using good soap, scrub with a stiff brush, and rinse in clear cold water, shape carefully while wet, and dry thoroughly. Do not iron."
