Wearing the Trousers

Fashion, Freedom, and the Rise of the Modern Woman

Don Chapman

Drawing on a range of primary sources, including newspaper reports, letters, journals and memoirs, Don Chapman presents a chronological history of female trousered dress in Britain – from the birth of ‘bloomerism’ in 1851 to the advent of the First World War when land girls began to wear clothing appropriate to the job at hand.
