My daughter wanted to finish up her My Style merit badge. We have learned about modesty, we learned to sew using a pattern, and we looked at accessories. The only requirement left was to learn how styles have changed over the last several decades.
Requirement #11, has the girls present the fashions form different eras in a creative way. She was to specifically look at clothes that I, her grandmother, and her great-grandmother wore. After looking through family photos were started searching the internet.
We found a great website, The People History. It explains how styles have changed. It also had lots of photos. I hate to admit how many of the fashions I remember wearing.
She opted to create a time-line using images we found on the website listed above. At the top of the page their are links to images and explanations for the 20’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.
Hope you find this information helpful.
NOTE: The text requirement has been greatly simplified here. Please be sure to read the full text in the Girl Handbook to make sure you fully understand the requirements.
