Bringing Literature to Life: Tiny Waists and Big, Fat Lies
February 8, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Are you fascinated with Victorian era clothing? This lecture is tailor-made for you!
Pantaloons, petticoats, and peplums galore! Learn about all the fashion phases and the many layers of the “properly” dressed lady.
A feast for the eyes and some truth for the soul: What’s the secret behind Scarlett’s 17-inch waist? Did women really die from “arsenic” dye? Did corsets really cause permanent deformities?
This is your opportunity to look under the Victorian skirt without getting a slap to the face!
