Old Economy Village curator, Sarah Buffington, will present a one-person fashion show of women’s clothing from the Harmonist times. Clothing will include antiques and high-quality reproductions from the 18th century through the 19th century. Ever wonder what was worn underneath those clothes and why? Sarah will discuss the evolution of both clothing and underclothing of this period.
