The Victorian Lady's Wardrobe - Sept. 17 at 1pm

On Sunday September 17th 2017 at 1:00-pm, the Walpack Historical Society will present a program by Lydia Chiappini demonstrating the construction of the Victorian Lady’s Wardrobe by deconstructing the various layers which support the fashion silhouette of the period, including hoop skirts, bustles, corsets, pantaloons and accessories. She will begin with an 1860’s costume and transform it to an 1880 period design. The costumes are period-correct originals based on the French Impressionists.

The meeting will take place at the Walpack Church on Main Street, Walpack Center, Sussex County, NJ within the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.
