Title: Zoom Program: Little Fashionista on the Prairie
Contact: Sarah,
Location: Zoom
Description: Have you ever found yourself wondering what Laura Ingalls Wilder actually wore during her time on the prairie? If you imagine a parade of calico dresses capped with a pink sunbonnet over braided pigtails cascading down her back, you might want to rethink that. Don't fret, though--this program is here to help! Laura F. Keyes' illustrated lecture dives into the historic terms of clothing, how Mrs. Wilder used them (correctly or incorrectly) when writing books in the 1930s and 1940s, and some detailed photos of original items. You will also learn the steps it takes to get into costumes like the ones the Ingalls and Wilder ladies wore. (description and photos provided by Laura Keyes).
