The purpose of this paper is to revive the dormant discussion about hypermedia resources for historic dress courses. We argue that hypermedia resources, and image-based resources in particular, should be developed and utilized by instructors to assist students in mastering content. A website containing historic dress hypermedia resources was developed by the authors because it is important to begin the revival. Forty-two students in the Fall 2016 historic dress course at a Midwestern university had the opportunity to use the hypermedia resource and provide qualitative feedback. Initial review of the data has indicated that students found the website and the content formats useful.
