Dolley Madison and 1812-1814 time period fashions

PBS's American Experience recently aired a program on Dolley Madison that included the 1812-1814 timeframe.  She defined the role of the President's wife, became America's first First Lady, and in the process changed the face of the American presidency. 

We really enjoyed it and thought you might too.

Keep an eye on the Empire period fashions and colours popular during that era to help you with your quilt fabric selection. 

The bonus video that takes you behind the scenes with the costume designer is particularly interesting!
