Lecture: Inside the Dress

We have explored what is under the dress, but now we will look at what is inside the dress! Garments from the collection will be turned inside out and examined in this lively talk with curator Diane Shewchuk. Come see examples of boning, taping, and other techniques that nineteenth-century dress makers

used to create the perfect fit and silhouette.

This lecture is included with museum admission.
SPACE IS LIMITED.*

*We have limited space for our lectures and seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Attendees will receive a wristband at the admission desk the day of the lecture.
