Learn about the fashions and textiles of the 1860’s. Fabric of the period was vibrant and women used it to create spectacular clothing for themselves and their families. At our next meeting, I’ll be giving an overview of cloth common during the mid-19th Century, some no longer in production, and how it was used to create various types of garments from underpinnings and dresses to bonnets and outerwear. We’ll review some of the these fabrics with examples and photos of original garments and reproductions made from modern versions of the cloth.
Join us on Tuesday, January 26, at 7:00 pm for refreshments, socializing and the library and at 7:30 pm for the meeting start and program at the Fiber Loft, Harvard Mass.
