Did you know that that clothing can make you sick, break your bones, and even kill you? It’s true! It can even make drive you mad! This program takes a look at 18th- and 19th-century fashions and the deadly secrets hiding behind those fabulous looks, and tackles some of those urban myths, too, including whether it was possible for Scarlet O’Hara to have an 18-inch waist!
We are excited to host Historian Kathy Wilson from Historical Perspectives, who has presented previous programs “Downstairs at Dowtown” and “You Want Me to Wear What?!” here in DeWitt. This program is free and open to the public.
