WHAT WOMEN WORE
AND WHY!

Christine Pilgrim invites you to explore what women wore under those frills and flounces of the Victorian era.

Some may even get to feel what it was like to wear the restricting undergarments endured by our sisters of yesteryear, as they try on some of the garments displayed.

Pilgrim discusses why such clothes were worn; and when (and why) they were replaced by less restrictive ones.

This informative, interactive presentation, interspersed with songs, jokes and monologues, covers fashion from the mid-1800s to the present day.

It is easily adapted to suit all ages, venues and running times, from 20 to 60 minutes.
