Oliver Wolcott Library Lecture

10/04/2017

160 South Street, Litchfield, CT

7-8 pm. Victorian Fashion: Real or Not? with Susan J. Jerome. Queen Victoria and the Victorian Age give rise to images of women swathed in yards and yard of fabric, proper bonnets on the head, gloves on the hands and tightly-corseted waists. We also think of children dressed like little adults and men in dark frock coats and stiff white shirts But is this a true understanding of the fashions worn during the Victorian era?
