Vintage Clothing, Patterns and Cloth Donated to Society

Janie Comer of Fulton recently donated a collection of vintage hand-sewn clothing, fabric and clothing patterns from the 1940’s and 1950’s to the Itawamba Historical Society. After cataloging, this collection will be housed in Historic Bonds House Museum in Mantachie, operated by the society. Included in the collection are a 1950’s sundress, a 1940’s skirt and blouse, and a 1950’s pair of slacks. The clothing patterns include a collection of 1950’s women’s and children’s clothing. The clothing material collection includes patterned “flour-sack” material. The society would like to thank Mrs. Comer for her generous donation that will enhance the collection at the society’s county museum of history.
