A talk by Jenny Colquhoun
“I hope you saw her petticoat, six inches deep in mud, I am absolutely certain; and the gown which had been let down to hide it not doing its office” Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice.
Petticoats, stays, drawers, corsets, pantaloons, chemise, shifts and let’s not forget the bustle! Come and join in a light hearted whimsical discussion about what might have been worn under ladies dresses and maybe even Jane herself in the early part of the 19th Century.
Sunday 24 June 2018, from 2.30pm until 4pm
Friends Meeting House, 39 Church Street, Alton, Hampshire, GU34 2DA
