History, home ec, and fashion converge in this episode, an interview with historian Linda Przybyszewski (Professor Pski to her students), author of The Lost Art of Dress: The Women Who Once Made America Stylish. Professor Pski fills us in on the fascinating and little-known story of the “dress doctors”—a group of early 20th-century seamstresses, scientists, and artists who taught girls and women the art of dressing (and living) with style, taste, and beauty. If you’ve ever wondered why vintage sewing books are so rad, you can thank the dress doctors!
