1. Victorian Lady May 20th


 From bustles to bonnets to high-button shoes – if you’ve ever wondered what it took for a fashionable lady from the 1890s to get dressed, you’ll want to see “The Victorian Lady” when she visits the Pine Forest Historical Museum in Edmore Sunday, May 20th.

In a fascinating presentation, historical interpreter Wendy Batchelder creates a curvaceous Victorian silhouette - layer by layer, beginning with beautiful vintage and reproduction "underpinnings". As each article of clothing is added, you’ll learn how and why all that amazing "architecture" was worn underneath to give the finished gown its shape and style.

Many lovely antique fashions and personal items that were a part of every Victorian woman's day will also be displayed to see and examine. You’ll leave with a new appreciation for these amazing women!

The public is invited for this unique peek into the lives of Victorian women. The Pine Forest Museum is located at 402 East Home Street in Edmore and the program is May 20th from 2-4. p.m. There is no charge but donations are appreciated.
