I should probably put this in the 19th C section, but more people look here!
I've read a couple of hearsay accounts of sewing children into clothes for the winter (doctors and teachers coming across it up to the 1970s), and there is a reference in _Goodnight Mr Tom_. I wonder does anyone know of any contemporary sources 19th or 20th C relating to this practice. Was it really for warmth?
