Songs and Stories of a Civil War Hospital
30 Chambersburg Street
Connie is an accomplished seamstress who has created over 60 period correct garments from the age of Hoop Skirts to the Victorian Age. Connie demonstrates these fashions from the period 1860 to 1900 at both public and private events. Her interest in Civil War clothing began after attending a local reenactment. After joining a unit, she began researching, collecting, and creating a wide range of period correct garments for both ladies and men.
While living in Southern California, she was employed in the wardrobe department at Knotts Berry Farm. Where she created garments ranging from Science Fiction to Historical period dress as well as cartoon characters.
Following the demonstration, there will be a time for refreshments, conversation and further explorations “Under it ALL!”
