Some adventuresome volunteers from the audience will get a chance to join the show, and step into fashion from the 1860s, while learning about what life was like for women of that era through interpreting their fashion and clothing.

This show complements one of the museums new exhibits, showcasing clothing the Jones family wore. The exhibit features early 19th century breeches, a corset and bustle, a ladies two-piece outfit and delicate dancing slippers.
