For today's Work of the Week, we are looking at another lovingly hand-crafted garment from our collection!
This dress was made by Mrs. Barbara Irwin from a pattern offered in the March 1972 edition of the Family Circle magazine. Mrs. Irwin made this dress for a special occasion in Calgary. Mrs. Irwin gifted the dress, magazine, and pattern she made to the Museum in 1982.
This dress was last on display at the MAG in our 2017-18 exhibition, Glamour: Fashionable Red Deer.
