Classes in Depth: History of Fashion

We're starting a new series here on the blog! Classes in Depth will tell you more about some of the unique opportunities offered in our Treadle classroom. Our class page tells you the basic info, but Classes in Depth aims to give you a little more, so your questions can be answered and you can figure out just which classes are right for you!

I'm starting out with one of my favorite classes to teach, History of Fashion!

In this 2.5 hour lecture and discussion, I will cover a 400-year timeline of fashion history, including lots of pretty pictures! We'll focus on women's wear but trends in menswear styles will also be covered.

I hope to address many common questions about historic clothing. Why so much underwear? Were corsets uncomfortable? How do you get your hairdo that big? We'll also talk about the why of fashion, and what inspired change.

If you're interested in re-creating historic garments, this is perfect starter class. I will give you tips on how to begin and lots of resources for learning more.

If you like vintage details and want to incorporate them into your modern sewing, we'll cover that too! There are plenty of ways to be inspired by the past.

This class is Friday 6:00 - 8:30 June 2
Skill Level: All
Fee: $25

To register, call us at (651)698-9690 or stop by the store.
