Join Curator of History Erika Holst for a behind-the-scenes peek at some of the objects which will be featured in the Illinois State Museum's upcoming fashion exhibition.  Fashioning Illinois, 1820-1900, opening in March, 2020, will explore the way  women made, maintained, and wore clothing in nineteenth century Illinois.
