Through September 15th, 2018 “I Do”, an Exhibition!

Petaluma, CA. ~ “I Do”, is an exhibition of over forty vin- tage wedding gowns and ac- coutrements from Petaluma families. These fine, hand- made gowns represent the best of the belle epoque and early 20th century fashion. More than forty vintage wed- ding gowns are included in this exhibit of exquisite and lovingly restored textiles. All of the dresses in this exhibit were worn by women who made Petaluma their home, although not all of their wed- dings occurred in Petaluma. The dates of the dresses range from the 1870’s through the 1960’s, some of which are

in such delicate condition that they are unable to be placed on mannequins, so they are spread out in cases or on fur- niture around the museum. Because of the delicate na- ture of the fabric, the slender dimensions of some of the dresses, and the fact that tex- tiles tend to shrink over time, almost every mannequin was custom-made by museum volunteers with Ethafoam and PVC tubing. The Petaluma Historical Library & Museum’s Textile Collection has been overseen for forty years by dedicated volunteer Teresa Froschl, to whom this exhibit is dedicated.
