Oh! I wish I had known this story last week when I brought the class to see the Bar Suit!

Knowing all the background really does make this suit more compelling, don't you think? Just direct your students to the blog, and they'll get the full story.

I'm glad to hear that you use the suit in your classes; it demonstrates the validity of having it in our collection.

This has got to be one of the most iconic designs of the Postwar Era and it's amazing to consider- I recently returned to this after viewing a dress from the series Outlander that was inspired by this dress design. Amazing!
