In the 17th Century, both boys and girls were sent to dame-schools from a young age. The girls weren't normally taught much book learning but were taught how to be a great housewife. They were taught how to cook. They were also taught how to spin and weave and knit, not only for home wear but the stores.
Fine knitting was well compensated for and was a matter of much pride to the knitter. Many complex stitches were taught to the women. The herring-bone being one type of fashion pattern. There was also the fox, and the geese knitting patterns.
The women were taught how to create fashion trends by having initials knit into mittens and stockings. The alphabet was knit into mittens and at times even a verse of poetry.
Young girls were taught to be gentle and learn nice embroidery. New fashion purses were made with fine embroidery and sold in the stores.

Тhеу heard about quilt piecing in a hundred different and difficult designs. They were also taught how to make bone lace with pillow and bobbins.
Boys were educated in, among other things, Latin Grammar. The study of writing and reading was firmly etched on their minds.
Fashion Trend in the Victorian Era
The 19th Century (Early Victorian 1837-1869) brought in a new fashion trend for women. What girls desired were curved to improve their femininity. The fashion corset of that day helped to create those curves that women wanted.

This Recent Era of Fashion Trends
However, even if young girls weren't receiving equal wage parity to men, many still got a good income. And that scenario caused a new fashion trend. The laddette fashion trend.Then along came the 20th Century. Young girls went to university and college. Тhеу bеgаn tо соmреtе wіth mеn fоr јоbs. Whаt thеу fоund dіffісult tо соmреtе wіth аt fіrst wаs thе соmраnу wаgе struсturе. Wоmеn dоіng еquаl wоrk tо mеn rесеіvеd fewer wages. The equal parity in all areas of life for girls hadn't arrived. Men were still the superior beings, in the professional areas of life.
Young women started to go out on the town most nights with their mates. Тhеу dіd nоt lіmіt thеіr drіnkіng, еvеn іf thеу wеrе wоrkіng thе fоllоwіng dау. A couple of small glasses of wine or spirits was not enough for them. They felt forced to compete with guys.
They would see young guys gulping down large glasses of beer. So they started to drink large glasses of beer.
At closing time, they would leave the public-house, legless. Be sick and then fall. Many young women started to go work feeling quite ill. But that did not deter them from starting the drinking cycle over again a few hours later. They just had to be seen to be equivalent to, and better still, than men.
Hopefully, as the 21st Century progresses, the laddette fashion trend will disappear. And, the 19th Century fashion trend will partly re-appear. This time, however, girls can make use of the more modern corset to re-introduce their femininity. And hopefully, they will still have great wage-earning jobs to purchase proper ladies fashion clothes.
