What sort of clothes did female convicts wear in The First Fleet on the way to Australia?
What sort of people were transported in the First Fleet?
The sort of people transported as convicts on the First Fleet were not violent criminals. No one aboard the First Fleet had been transported for murderer or manslaughter, or any crimes involving physical attacks. Most of them were convicts, made up of thieves, pick-pockets, forgers, petty criminals and ordinary people just struggling to survive and driven to steal food. Then, of course, there were those who were administrators in the new colony, and others who were needed to guard the convicts. They included the captains, Governor Phillip and Captain Hunter; numerous officers, some of whom had wives; and marines, some of whom also had wives and children; there was also one minister. a these people were not "transported": they, at least, had the option to return to England once their time of service was completed.

Asked in Australia, Australian Colonial Settlement
What sort of conditions would convicts that came to Australia live in?
The very first convicts to arrive in Australia lived in rough lean-tos and tents, until barracks could be built. When the first convicts arrived in Australia, they found a hot, humid country. The bushland was thick and unlike anything they had at home - instead of green, grassy hills and green trees, they found rocky terrain and strange, grey-green trees that smelled strong and sweet. The heat and humidity made it difficult to motivate the convicts to work, and English tools and implements were unusable in the tough Australian soil. They were expected to work long, hard hours in these hot and humid conditions.

Asked in Clothing, History of Australia, Roman Empire
What sort of clothes did the convicts wear?
If you mean in the ancient Roman world, they wore their ordinary street clothes. Roman justice was carried out very quickly. They had no prisons as we know them today. Their prisons were more like our jails, merely holding places until the final sentence was known. If you mean the convicts transported to Australia, which is the more common understanding of the term, they also wore just their own clothes. Contrary to common belief, convicts did not have "uniforms". They wore just the clothes they were wearing at the time of their sentencing. Some convicts had a second set of clothes, but these were invariably stolen enroute to Australia
