Teen Boy’s Rural Sack coat

This boy’s cotton sack coat is headed to Historic Exchange Place in Kingsport, Tennessee and is indicative of the styles worn by teen boys throughout 19th century Southern Appalachia.

This sack coat is made of heavy weight plain weave brushed cotton in a natural green and is lined in roller printed cotton. The interior features a single patch pocket and four large wooden buttons close the front of the coat.

The cut of this coat is universal and would have been worn for outdoor work or as a dress coat.

Girl’s petticoats

These two styles of girl’s petticoats were popular during the early to mid 19th century. Our mini corded petticoat is a girl-¬†size version of our women’s corded petticoat and was worn by children from the 1820s through the 1870s. It is made of checked cotton cloth and is meant to replicate the “recycling” of older adult garments into children’s clothing.

The starched and tucked cotton petticoat is a standard in children’s undergarments and would have¬†been worn from childhood into the teenage years. (Shown layered over the corded petticoat in the 1840s style).
