The Fraser Wedding Dress - used continuously by a single family since it was made in 1785, last worn in 2005 From Inverness Museums & Art Gallery via Emotional Objects
Someone shared it on Heather F's FB page suggesting she make it for herself (click for link to FB page.) Interesting historical info about the dress here: http://bit.ly/FraserDress. "Among the displays at the Inverness Museum & Art Gallery is a fine example of a tartan wedding dress from the latter half of the 18th century. The dress was worn at, and probably made for, the wedding of Isabella MacTavish to Malcolm Fraser, both from Stratherrick, in 1785."

Martha Washington's bathing dress - 18th century
Martha Washington's "bathing gown" with weights in the hem to keep the fabric from floating in the water. Made from a checked linen.
Bathing Gown : This bathing gown is a rare example of the survival of a complete garment worn by Martha Washington. The gown, made of blue and white linen with lead weights sown into the hem for modesty, was probably worn by Martha on a 1769 trip to the mineral waters in Berkeley Springs, Virginia. The trip was primarily for the benefit of Martha’s daughter Patsy; it was hoped the waters would help cure her epilepsy (image courtesy of Mount Vernon Ladies' Association).
An 18th century bathing shift in blue and white linen, owned by Martha Washington.

Ballgown, 1780-85 France, Musée des Tissus de Lyon This dress, also called “robe parée”, is a ball dress. The skirt is worn over a pannier which, early 1780, was less ample than the one used under the dress “à la française”. The decoration consists of appliqué painted flowers, gauze flounces and extremely refined embroideries. It exemplifies the dresses Rose Bertin, Marie-Antoinette’s dressmaker, used to create for the queen.
