Just a short note, the emphasis in Iowa is only on the "I", like "EYE-owa" (or EYE-uhwa), rather than "EYE-OH-wa"

So they tried to make fun of the women wearing pants by using their own gender stereotypes? I like how they thought neglecting your children beating your husband or just being A nasty horrible guy with no manners was supposed to be a insult but ended up making them self look bad. It's almost like your trying to say we need to stop this, women are not allowed to hurt their significant other, neglected their children as if that's a man's right? It's a little sad that you take pride in being a horrible person or horrible father, probably even a horrible friend as if it's something to be proud of ? like come on your not embarrassing her. To have proud for this stereotype that men don't care about their family, beat their wives neglect their children as if it's something be proud of its sad very sad.

Hear me out history told in new slang Summarising the story and using slang to give a dumb down or just funny translation to something turning an entire paragraph into a sentence but with bad grammar I would watch a serious like that

And quite frankly, bloomer’s reply to the priest makes sense. The Bible does say a woman should not dress in man’s clothes, (or vise versa) but that’s because what is considered ‘decent’ is a bit different (ex: it’s commonly accepted for men to be shirtless but not women) so yeah.. even in the Bible there wasn’t a huge difference between men and women’s clothes! And part of that difference was purely religious culture, some things were worn only by men who were religious leaders, so, yeah, general women wouldn’t be allowed to wear that stuff. So it’s a silly argument from that priest. The main point God made in the Bible was just to be *decent*, and not to purposefully be going around *looking* like the opposite gender. Case and point lol.

Was there's greater use of trousers in women's wear in the wild West of the US? I have seen photos of Annie Oakley in clothes very similar to what a typical cowboy wore. Was this common or something very unique? I would think riding a western saddle would be difficult in yards of material and crinoline.

I hate that people did (and do) criticize others or dressing a certain way- particularly girls dressing a bit more masculine and guys dressing more feminine- Like, it's just fabric tied up with some string to look pretty. Fabric doesn't have a gender.

Love your outfit!!! I'm binge watching your channel, I love it and I dont know why but I love the accent too. I also love how your camera decided that it should focus on that image behind your and not you. Human face, or sketch.... clearly the camera favors the sketch. Though I think it is wrong. Lol Sorry. I just found that amusing.

Huh, those ladies at 5:40, wearing the top hat, jacket, skirt and trousers combo, look kinda awesome. I guess they're meant to appear similar to an 1850's gang.

I think about the times say, when Napoleon was gaining power and women could dampen their dress to sort of make it see through. I don't get how it went from light and breezy dresses, to the over dressed horrific fashion so soon after. I did read that after the 1918 flu, fashion changed because of the illness. That dresses went UP, like the nurses of the time wore, and also hair was cut as it was felt to be unhygienic. When longer dresses for evening wear came back in the 1930's - 40's, women worried it would be unhygienic and dangerous, as those dresses dragged in "germs" from the street. I don't know if that is true or not. Did the 1918 pandemic truly cause a fashion change?

Should have stuck with trousers. Brits get really confused when you talk about pants cause that’s underwear. Like undies. Like. Thongs or boxers 🤷‍♀️

These dresses look very much like the Turkish and South Asian style of dress called Shalwar Kameez or Churidar. These outfits have been worn by both men and women historically, and continues to be a popular outfit worn by everyone. I am really interested in finding out more about how Elizabeth first came across this style and how she adapted it to the 'Victorian' style of the big poofy dress.

This is basically what women in the middle east wore during the same era. I think the trousers are originally middle eastern but the skirt thing was European influence. There are pictures of Iranian royal harem ladies with those. I don’t know if everyone wore them though. But when they went out in the city they had to wear this long veil and a neghab covering everything.

I guess in this context, the Ottoman Empire (Turkey) was many, many, many years ahead of its time 😂 Women have been wearing trousers there since like... the 14th century. It’s part of their traditional clothing. And looking at these photos of women in short dresses with the trousers honestly just looks like a more westernized version of traditional Turkish clothing.

Strange how 150 years later we still haven't really figured out how to wear skirts with pants even though it's the obviously superior style. We need companies to start making skirts/dresses that specifically match the pants because the bloomer dress looked amazing.

Can you tell us something about so called "pantalons"? Some version look like tights, other like those thick bodystockings, held up by shoulder straps, that dancers wear for warmig up. Not to be confused with light undergarment of ice skaters or lace lingerie. Earliest images, from a museums catalogue, I came across dated the garment to be from around 1800 (the garment on the picture, not the picture) Worn by men and children. Either made of silk or rib knit cotton. Supposedly some women dared to wear them to (under their dresses). I did not find any further details about those pantalons, but one image in this catalogue showed something from 1930 that I'd call a bodysuit with an open overlapping crotch. So I guess they could have done this with patalons two. Especially when worn under a corset. Sounds a bit like a fetish fantasy. But thats not al too far from what Julie Newmar patented and wore under her catwomen costume.

A serious question: drawers back then had open crotch. It was easier to go to the bathroom with the corset and the petticoats and everything you had to wear. Were the bloomers open crotch? Because it would be a nightmare to go to the bathroom if they were closed, but it would be very embarrassing if your skirt lift and show your crotch... Just saying.

Bloomer's outfit was referred to by some in the press, as wearing the costume of childhood. Girl children, from the late 1700s-1840s, up to the age of about 15, wore short skirts, often with pantalettes. Pantalettes were sometimes sewn like trousers, sometimes just partial leg covers tied on below the knee.. Pantalettes shortened to knee length in the 1850s and were made like trousers, because the combination of crinoline bouncing all over the place, and the short skirts worn by children, did require "trousers" undernearth.

Thank youuuu for this bit of fashion history !!! Bloomers to me were always somewhat silly looking underwear with ruffles/gathered fabric, no clue there was such history behind the word. My trousers today are leggings with a completely ripped out knee from when I fell off my bike. Don't drink and ride a bicycle at 2am for lolz, is what I learned.

I eould suggest reading "Herland", written by an astonishingly progressive Victorian/Edwardian era feminist, for the description of the clothes the women wear. I found myself wanting to make the jacket and pants described (pockets, pockets everywhere!) If you can get past the very Victorian attitude towards sex (waste of time, brings out the beast in men) the rest of the story is progressive even by today's standards. Also, it's pretty much the inspo for Wonder Woman.

I really enjoy your videos, educative and yet not dry, with a good sense of humor. These last couple of weeks I have been watching them, they help me relax and laugh out loud sometimes. Thank you for your great content and for sharing it with is! An aside - I really love one show, "Gentleman Jack", about Ann Lister. In it the lead actress wears a fashion that is a bit masculine. You certainly seem to have lots of projects and Im not suggesting you make a video especially for that; I would be curious to know your opinion of the costuming in the series, especially on the clothes that Ann Lister wears. Greetings and hugs from Bulgaria! Stay safe. :)

Very interesting video as always. Having the attires of this era presented in a viewer friendly analysis is very useful and we learn more this way. (A small problem to me at least is that the fast tempo of the music especially in the climax was making hard to focus on the words even if the volume was low...and ok, maybe having connected that song to "M" the kids murderer film might played a part ^^")

That would have been an awesome time to be alive! I love defying social norms ;>. As a kid a raised a fuss about the flowery dresses my parents bought me to go to church in. I was like "just because I'm a girl doesn't mean I want to wear a dress or want flowers on everything!" flowers on it made it 10 times worse. Plus my parents thought that women had to wear dresses to church. This was the 1970's - 80's, not the 1870's. Sigh.

I find this topic fascinating. I remember when I was a little kid hearing the older women in my family make the same arguments about men's and women's fashions. As a conservative Bible teacher, I think Ms. Bloomer would have had a better argument simply by inviting the Bishop or any man to wear the women's trousers with the over-skirt/dress. Their reluctance to do so would prove the nature of the garment to be that of a woman. A "style" of pants can be feminine just as tunics and draped garments were the norm for Biblical times. In ancient times women wore their dresses in a female fashion, and men wore essentially the same garment in a male fashion. If Jesus could wear a dress in a male fashion then surely the modern woman of the 19th century could wear her trousers in a female fashion. Deuteronomy 22:5 “A woman shall not wear man’s clothing, nor shall a man put on a woman’s clothing; for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord your God. (NASB) Bloomer's fashions were not men's clothing because she was not trying to make women look like men. Thanks for your great channel!
