This issue of White House History focuses on fashion in the White House. The cover features a ball gown worn by First Lady Sarah Polk in the late 1840s.

Also included are articles on Thomas Jefferson, presidential valets, and the uniforms of White House domestics as well as newly commissioned photography of clothing in the collections of the James K. Polk Ancestral Home, the Woodrow Wilson House, and the Grover Cleveland Birthplace.
