Pockets

20161025_153856

For most of the 19th Century, women wore pockets underneath their dresses. This way, their pocket could stay loaded (the way a purse does) and be put on each morning as part of their dressing routine. We will have these available for sale this weekend at the rehearsals for Dickens Fair along with skirts, aprons, bloomers, waistcoats, and all manner of Victorian clothes.
