As part of the Fresh Goods lecture series,  join historians and living history interpreters Linda Greene and Michele Gabrielson for an in-depth look at how women got dressed every day in the 1700s. They will explore the “ins” and “outs” of a typical 18th century woman’s dress from a common, lower to middling class status to an upper class persona. Each layer of clothing will be discussed with a focus on fabric, style and purpose. Perfect for anyone interested in colonial era costume or the lives of women in the 18th century!
