About the Event
American women's fashion changed drastically between 1830 - 1920. One of the ways we can study this change is through their undying pursuit for equal rights through voting. With each step towards the Vote, women's fashion stepped in a direction that directly affects how women dress today.
Abagail Belcastro has an MFA with Fairleigh Dickinson University, and is the Secretary and Civilian Coordinator with the 2D NJ Brigade. She has over a decade of experience in sewing and studying women's 19th century clothing.
