“Every dress has a story behind it,” Andrea Kellett, a member of the Historical Society, said. “It’s history, mixed with fashion.” The dresses span many decades, ranging from the 1800s up to the 1990s. The display has covered far more than Kellett ever envisioned it would. “When we came up with the idea, we thought we’d get about 10 or 12 dresses,” she said. “We’ve more than doubled that.” The dresses show not only a change in style, but a change in lifestyle, throughout the decades. “Many of the dresses were black in ชุดจั๊มสูทขาสั้น ออกงาน the early days,” Kellett said. “When Queen Victoria got married in the 1840s, the white dresses started to come into style. “Then when you get into the 1920s and 1930s, during the depression era, you saw how practical dresses became. The lace could be removed and they could be worn as dresses for other occasions.” That practicality even had one dress that had an area that would open up for women to breastfeed. “You see so many different kinds of dresses,” Kellett said. “There are dresses that are handmade or dresses that were worn by both mothers and their daughters.” Kellett is one of several PAHS members to have their own wedding dress on display.
