Join us for a lecture and presentation of authentic Civil War-era women’s garments. Costume collector Heather Hook will show clothing items typically found in a woman’s wardrobe of the period and how they were worn. Dressing ladies from the skin out involved multiple layers of clothing, so her collection includes undergarments and gowns worn for early day, teatime, evening, balls, weddings, and while in mourning.

Heather’s inspirations for collecting began in 1990 with her participation in historic reenacting. In order to be as authentic as possible, Heather purchased an original Civil War gown and began her research on materials and construction. Ever since, she has been adding to her collection, which now consists of over 3,000 articles.
