DATING PHOTOGRAPHS THROUGH CLOTHING OF MEN AND CHILDREN

PEGGY APGAR WILL PRESENT ANOTHER EXCITING PROGRAM FOR THE WABASH VALLEY GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY ON MONDAY, APRIL 9 AT 6:30 PM IN THE VIGO COUNTY LIBRARY LOWER LEVEL.

THE PROGRAM COVERS DATING PHOTOGRAPHS THROUGH PERIOD CLOTHING AND ACCESSORIES OF MEN AND CHILDREN.  PEGGY  PREVIOUSLY  PRESENTED A PROGRAM TO WVGS,  COVERING WOMENS’ CLOTHING AND WILL TOUCH UPON THAT, AGAIN, IN THIS PROGRAM BUT FOCUS ON THE CLOTHING OF  MEN AND CHILDREN.

PEGGY HAS WORKED ON PERIOD COSTUMING FOR 30 YEARS AT THE COMMUNITY THEATER OF TERRE HAUTE, AS WELL AS WITH THE VIGO COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY ON PERIOD STYLE SHOWS. 

SHE IS CURRENTLY WORKING ON COSTUMING FOR THE COMMUNITY THEATER PRODUCTION OF MEET ME IN SAINT LOUIS,   STAGED  IN  THE EARLY 1900’S.

SHE OFTEN MAKES THE CLOTHING FROM PATTERNS OR REMAKES CLOTHING TO SUIT A PARTICULAR TIME PERIOD, AS WELL  AS  ALTERING  CLOTHING  TO  FIT THE PERFORMER.   OLDER CLOTHING, THAT HAS BEEN DONATED, IS OFTEN MUCH SMALLER AND SHORTER AND FREQUENTLY NEEDS TO BE ALTERED.

 SHE STATES THAT  THERE  ARE  HISTORICAL  PATTERNS AVAILABLE AT FABRIC STORES, PARTICULARLY CIVIL WAR PATTERNS,  BECAUSE  OF AREA REENACTMENT GROUPS.

“STYLES CHANGE WITH HISTORY,” SHE STATES,   “SUCH AS, WITH THE ADVENT OF CARS, HATS, OF COURSE, CHANGED”.

“THIS PROGRAM WILL BE A LITTLE MORE DIFFICULT, AS MEN’S CLOTHING DID NOT CHANGE AS READILY AS WOMEN’S.”   

BRING YOUR PERSONAL PHOTOS THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO HAVE DATED.
