Authors Barbara Burman and Ariane Fennetaux take a close look at the surprising history of women’s pockets, tracing today’s minimalist external styles to the time when women wore large, detachable sacks tied around their waists and hidden under their petticoats. Using examples from museum collections and police records, the authors provide a wealth of illustrations and explanations, showing how the contents of the detachable pockets revealed the way women lived their lives day-to-day. Class held over Zoom.
