Trace the dramatic changes in fashion and dress of men, women and children in the 19th century. Spend a week with one of our museum seamstresses. Discover how to “date” a costume by its style. Learn about the influences that affected how people dressed: was it all a shift in taste, or was it something more? Try out your new skills by making your own bonnet to take home.
Each child is loaned a costume, which becomes their outfit for the week. A cash deposit of $40 is required and will be refunded when the costume is returned.
