In the Revolutionary Style

March 17, 2019, 1:00 - 4:00 PM

Join Durand-Hedden for this wonderful event for mothers, daughters, fashionistas, home sewers, history lovers, and all those who wonder how clothing provides a window into the past. At 2pm, clothing historian Pat Sanftner will reveal the high style changes that took place in the 1700s in Europe and then the American Colonies, and the fashion mavens who made them, using 100 illustrations to demonstrate four significant style changes during the time period.

There will also be a charming display of hand-sewn outfits for American Girl® dolls and other 18-inch dolls by sisters Judy Cronin and Claire Sisson, who call themselves LindsayLu. LindsayLu doll outfits will be available for sale at the event.

The popular exhibit Exploring Golf Island will be on display for visitors.
