Waistcoat; Dunlop, William; Wybrow, Catherine, nee Gutsell; 1912; WW.1975.308
WaistcoatAbout this object
This waistcoat was worn by Mr A.F. Wybrow on his wedding day in 1912. Nicknamed 'Dick', he was a bushman who worked at a number of the sawmills in the district and is fondly remembered as a singer and a talented musician particularly on the violin.
The waistcoat was made by the Reverend William Dunlop, whose wife taught at Niagara school, but the beautiful French knot embroidery work was by his wife to be Catherine Wybrow (nee Gutsell). Catherine remarked many years later that all the days and hours she spent on embroidering the garment meant it really was a labour of love.
