- Illinois State Museum, Springfield
How much time did 19th century women invest in the care of their clothing? Join Curator of History Erika Holst on a walk through the Fashioning Illinois exhibition to find out! Learn how clothing was washed, mended, and made over to prolong its life, and how it was recycled when worn out. Go behind the scenes at the Research and Collections Center for a closer look at mended clothing and recycled textiles.
