I thought it would be really interesting to share these photographs of lovely young ladies who have made their dresses and entered into a competition at the annual Indiana State Fair. The period of time is really interesting to see the changes in fashion. These ladies all did some marvelous work creating these garments. How fun that the Indiana State Fair had such an event. The photography is fantastic as it is rare to be able to zoom in for the intimate details. For some reason when I upload these images they take on more of a tinted look, you can click on the link below and see better images of these wonderful creations.
Images below are from the Indiana Historical Society, JC Allen collection. These photographs are very detailed and you can zoom in on them at this weblink to take in all the details.
