Come See Us in Grand Rapids! 9/16/2016

Last March as a tie-in to our Up Cloche exhibit we put on an event called Dress Like a Flapper.  We used instructions created by Mary Brooks Picken, Director of Instruction at the the Woman’s Institute of Domestic Arts and Science, to make a dress in under one hour in front of a live audience.  The event was not only educational, but also great fun!

We’ll be presenting a paper on the One Hour Dress and this event at the Costume Society of America Midwest Region Annual Meeting and Symposium in Grand Rapids on Friday  September 16th.  More information can be found here and the event schedule is here.
