A Woman's Work; Dressmaking and Handcrafts in Subiaco
In the early 1900s, Subiaco was the dressmakers suburb. Dressmakers home and business listings increased by 566 per cent from 1895 to 1915. On the domestic front, women took charge of keeping themselves and their children clothed. Dressmaking was a skill many women fell back on to provide additional income for the family. This often included altering clothing from their own homes or sewing clothes for special occasions. For some families, dressmaking was the only source of income.
This exhibition features some stunning hand sewn dresses, as well as an early foot pedal sewing machine and a hand driven sewing machine. Come and see some old patterns and handmade lace as well as all the fixings used in dressmaking.
Also on display are a variety of handcrafts, crochet, embroidery and lace, made by women in Subiaco from the early 1900s to the 1960s and well as the tools used to create them.
