What's Old In Kalispell, MT: Antique Lingerie Dresses




Classic antique dresses (like the one pictured) from the turn of the 20th century are white cotton lawn or batiste, sometimes with intricate pleatwork, lace and embroidery.  They can be works of art.  And there's a cache of them on display at the Conrad Mansion in Kalispell, MT through October 15, 2013.

  1. April, are you in the area? Curious because this is my neck of the woods.

    1. Hi Denise! Sorry for the much belated reply. I was out west then, but not close enough to get to this exhibit. I am planning a westward trek (to AZ) in a month or two, though. It may be a long way from MT, but please email me if we might be able to get together :)
