From practical to playful and romantic to racy, this talk covers both staid foundation garments and fanciful boudoir wear. Ever wondered just how you rolled your stockings down or what put the snap in your garters?

Join social historian and vintage clothing collector Inger Sheil as we take a peek behind the dressing screen at frilly French knickers, sensible union suits, teddy “bares,” slinky bias-cut nightgowns and robes, the dainty whimsy of stylish déshabillée and the bold, colourful styles of Art Deco lounging pyjamas.

Entry by donation.

Presented by guest speaker Inger Sheil.
