Summary
"Through home sewing, Sarah A. Gordon examines domestic labor, marketing practices, changing standards of feminity and understanding of class, gender, and race from 1890 to 1930. As ready -made garments became increasingly available due to industrialization, many women, out of necessity or choice, continued to make their own clothing ... The shifting meanings of sewing formed a contested space in which businesses promoted sewing machines as tools for maintaining domestic harmony, women interpreted patterns to suit -or flout- definitions of appropriate appearances, and girls were taught to sew in ways that reflected beliefs about class, race, and region."
