They Wore What?!

Pre-registration Required / FREE

Have you ever wondered why our ancestors wore all those layers? What was the point, and how could they ever be comfortable? Join us for a peak into 200 year old wardrobes. After a primer on underclothes, we’ll look at ladies’ fashions in Paris at the time and how those styles translated to frontier life. We’ll also see the transition in men’s fashion from ostentatious to subdued. From shifts to waistcoats and bonnets to pantaloons, learn what it took to be properly dressed during the early 1800s and even how you can go about replicating those  styles today with living history.
