If you are anywhere near Durham, NH, you might want to visit the exhibit Embellishments: Constructing Victorian Detail at the University of New Hampshire (free, in the basement of Dimond Library, curated by Astrida Schaeffer). Go soon, though, it has been extended to March 22 and then will be gone. Beautiful dresses featuring decorative techniques: pleats, edging, ruching, applique, and much more, including unexpected asymmetry. Wish I had found it sooner so I could squeeze more visits in.

At the moment it's a one-time thing, but I was told the curator is hoping to make it a traveling exhibit. If I find out that she manages that, I'll post it here.
