Abstract or Summary
  • Apparel fashion is a daily component of society that transcends generations and cultures. The purpose of my research was to analyze the garment structure and construction of two separate but comparable garments in style, function, and content - one from the 1910s and one from 2015. Using the New Brunswick Artifact Analysis Method, I compared and contrasted a c.1915 armistice blouse to a 2015 dress shirt, focusing on the apparel production processes needed to manufacture each blouse. I determined that the 1910s garment was hand stitched, predominantly made out of a cotton plain weave fabric, and was created during the transition to ready-to-wear apparel in the U.S. In contrast, the 2015 shirt was machine-sewn, made out of a blend of 70% cotton/30% lyocell plain weave fabric, and manufactured in China with more advanced technology and machinery than was available in the 1910s. Comparing the two blouses overall, the transition to twenty-first century production retained much of the basic mechanism machinery used in 1910s apparel production, though it was improved upon; however, many elements that originated with the RTW industry are still retained in 2015, such as the structure, the motivation behind it, and the labor intensiveness.
