Description

Say Yes to the Dress: A Journey through the History of Infant’s Clothing in Western Culture

November 10, 2017 to May 31, 2018

Why are boys wearing dresses in old paintings and photographs? Was pink always a girl’s colour and blue always a boy’s colour? What exactly are swaddling clothes? If you’ve asked yourself any of these questions then this exhibit is for you. Say Yes to the Dress looks at infant clothing from antiquity to the present. Swaddling clothes, dresses, diapers, layettes, and sleepers – it’s all on display for you to enjoy. Learn why dresses were popular for both boys and girls to wear from medieval times to the early 1900s.  See many never-before displayed items from our museum collection as well as special items loaned for this display. This exhibit was curated by our museum textile volunteer Marjo Wheat.
