On Monday, August 25th at 10:00 a.m. the Costume Museum of Canada joins us in the Community Classroom for a presentation on how the war overseas mandated a change in clothing here at home so women in particular and those left at home could cope with the changing responsibilities now that much of the workforce were overseas. Corsets and outfits with many layers became history and realistic, loose and useful clothing entered the mainstream. Volunteers from the museum will model some of the styles of the time. Pre-registration required. $20 per person.
