American Sportswear Workshop June 23 - 25, 2008

Vintage Fashion Guild trade member, Lizzie Bramlett of , will present the second workshop of the VFG's 2008 series beginning on Monday, June 23 and continuing through June 25. If you have never attended one of Lizzie's workshops, then you are in for a treat. A retired teacher and avid vintage sportswear collector, Lizzie invites all attendees to have their sportswear questions ready and even scan their photos of vintage sportswear to share during the event. It is a free workshop on the VFG's public workshop forum.

Tuesday, June 24: Lizzie will explain how sportswear evolved in private situations, such as women's colleges and summer camps.

Wednesday, June 25: Day three will be devoted to active sportswear (tennis, bicycling, golf, hiking, skiing) and how active sportswear spilled over into the everyday lives of women. Sportswear greats, such as Claire McCardell, Carolyn Schurner and Tom Brigance, will be mentioned.
