Inside the Dress
Lecture with Diane Shewchuk, Curator at the Albany Institute of History & Art.
We have explored what is under the dress, but now we will look at what is inside the dress! Garments from the collection will be turned inside out and examined in this lively talk with curator Diane Shewchuk. Come see examples of boning, taping, and other techniques that nineteenth-century dress makers used to create the perfect fit and silhouette.
We have limited space for our lectures and seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Attendees will receive a wristband at the admission desk the day of the lecture.
