Join us for an afternoon tea and the presentation "Fashions to Die For" presented by Kathy Wilson.
Did you know that clothing can make you sick, break your bones, and even kill you? It's true! It can even drive you mad! This programs takes a look at 18th and 19th century fashions and the deadly secrets hiding behind those fabulous looks. We'll tackle some of those urban myths, too, including whether it was possible for Scarlet O'Hara to have an 18" waist!
