Blue Collar, White Collar, Pink Collar

Several years back I made some mid eighteen sixti-ish work dresses for a textile museum in Connecticut. They were simple one-size-fits-all outfits for employees to wear. This was pretty exciting for me, my work being worn at a real museum! The dresses have also made an appearance at the Big E Fair which I understand is a fairly big fair.By now though, I’d mostly forgotten about these dresses but it turns out that their story has another chapter.

     They were used in a temporary exhibit on American work clothes from Colonial times through Present.

Sure, not the most glamorous but I’m proud of where these little dresses have gone! There’s even a sign with my name on it.
