LECTURE Inside the Dress

Join Well-Dressed in Victorian Albany: 19th Century Fashion from the Albany Institute Collection curator Diane Shewchuk for another lively show and tell.

Diane Shewchuk, Curator

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.

Included with museum admission*

*We have limited space for our lecture 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.
