Unlacing the Victorian Woman

When a Victorian woman said she was going to dress for dinner, it may well have been her fourth change of clothes that day!

And did you ever wonder what they wore under those fancy, cumbersome dresses?

You can find out by attending Unlacing the Victorian Woman, Sunday, November 13th at 2pm. The program is presented by costume designer and historian Barbara Meyer Darlin. This program has been described as a one-woman fashion show, a social history lesson, a conceptual-performance/ lecture, and a Victorian striptease.
