Clothing of the 1830's

Clothing of the 1830's | Dedicated to clothing styles and materials from 1830. Clothing the family of the 1830s was an important task, and most of the work was the responsibility of the women. Every stitch of the sewing had to be done by hand; Elias Howe didn't even invent the sewing machine until 1846, and Isaac Singer's version didn't come about until 1850. Of course, ordinary people didn't have the large wardrobes we expect today. They made do with one outfit for everyday, one for Sunday best, and perhaps one other, or parts of another, for seasonal change. Even wealthy people didn't necessarily have lots of clothes, although their money allowed them to purchase ready-made items from the storekeeper, or to hire custom sewing done outside the household, or by a temporary live-in seamstress.
