JASNA-NY invites you...Dress in the Regency Period

at 2:00 p.m. General Society Library, 20 West 44th Street
(between Fifth & Sixth)

We are delighted that the well known designer and fashion historian, Daniel Cole, will present an illustrated talk on Regency clothing explaining many of the intriguing mysteries of both women's and men's clothing.

What, for example, are half-boots? Were women's dresses actually wetted down to make them cling? Why were knee britches for formal attire and pantaloons for daytime? These and many other fascinating facts about clothing in Jane Austen's time will be explored. And, as a special treat, members of our own Juvenilia will model examples of Regency clothing selected by Mr. Cole from the Theater Development Fund's Costume Collection. What would such a meeting be without members in costume? This is your opportunity to show off your Regency era finery. So, come and enjoy a delicious tea, small groups "talking Jane", and a birthday toast to Jane Austen herself on her 233rd birthday!
