lively program begins as she dons undergarments over a body
suit – the corseting, hoops and petticoats that gave Civil
War-era dresses their shape. Once formally clothed, she’ll
accessorize with fans, jewelry, hats and explain the
contents of her purse. She’ll discuss manners, customs,
and the role of servants in the Victorian household. She
will also talk about inventions of the era, home life, and
life in the workplace. The program is a delightful mix of
facts, humor and history.
