I am excited to begin research on historical fashions. My great aunts Mary and Sarah were knowledgeable seamstresses from 1897 to the 1950s. They both worked in NYC and Sarah had a history at the once famous Grand Union hotel in Saratoga Springs. I plan to meet with Caitlin Sheldon soon and hopefully learn more about the research materials I need to look at. Can’t wait to see her Victorian Dress presentation at Saratoga Public Library on October 24 at Noon.
