Tuesday Treasure: Under the Skirt!

Posted by Mariet Griffiths on Monday, April 27, 2020 at 5:08 PM

Chemise, stays, stockings, bloomers and petticoats! Glimpse some ankles and learn about the underthings and skivvies of the past. Dispel the myths of corsets, find out how ladies and men manipulated their silhouettes with fashion and get the answer to the fashion mystery of ages: How many layers could really be under those skirts?

Join us for Tuesday Treasures on May 12 from 6 to 6:30 pm.  It is a Westport Museum program showcasing objects from the collection not normally on public view. See and hear the stories behind some of the most unique, mysterious and impactful artifacts in our community.
