If you like the Manor's Facebook page you can look at the exhibit. Throughout the house they had mannequins dressed in 17th century clothing. They did an amazing job recreating the clothing and they represented all the different people that lived on the property, the family and their children, slaves, house staff and iron furnace workers. I loved that some of the women figures had pinballs hanging from thieir waist and a pin cushion/scissor holder.
The exhibit also had 3 rooms of original clothing. It is so amazing to see these survivors, tiny baby clothes, men's breeches and shirts, corsets and dresses. The curator Amy gave us a wonderful tour. Thank You!
If you are in the Philadelphia area the exhibit is running through the end of November and is definitely with seeing.
Thanks for traveling with me!
Have a great weekend!
