Genealogy. Remember "Home Spun?" #southcarolinapioneersnet

Remember Home Spun?

cedar chestDuring the 18th century, there were no closets, and women confined themselves to two dresses, one for daytime, and the other for special occasions, such as attending church and parties. The dress was folded in a cedar chest at the foot of the bed. When it became too worn, the seams were torn apart and the old dress used as a pattern to make a new one. When the cotton crop was harvested, the ladies spun cotton into thread. And sewed with their hands the clothing for all the family.
