Step-By-Step Solution

1. What was the most significant technological development in the first half of the nineteen th century that revolutionized the production of clothing?

The sewing machine was invented.

Who were the three principal contributors and what were their achievements?

In 1830 Barthelemy Thimmonier invented a crude machine that could sew about 200 stitches a minute. In 1845

American inventor Elias Howe improved the sewing machine with a curved eye-point needle that moved horizontally with an underthread shuttle. Soon afterward, Isaac Singer developed a sewing machine with a vertical straight needle and foot treadle operation.

What has been the impact of this technology?

The sewing machine revolutionized ready-to-wear manufacturing, thus making fashion more available and affordable across most all segments of society. In addition, home models of the sewing machine eased the workload of nineteenth-century women and made possible a more varied wardrobe for the entire family.
