Deeanne Gist - Special Lunch Presentation
Bottoms Up: A Look at Victorian Women's Clothing from the Inside Out
Ever wonder what Victorian women wore under all those gowns? Bestselling historical author Deeanne Gist strips down to chemise and bloomers, then has her lady's maid dress her layer-by-layer.
This entertaining presentation has been featured on the front page of the Wall Street Journal and in the Denver Post. Their accompanying video (FrontPageWSJ.com) was the most watched video on the Wall Street Journal's site for three days.
