Recent news reports about the newly re-opened “First Ladies at the Smithsonian” exhibit mention Martha Washington’s silk gown, decorated with hand-painted flowers, birds and insects. A colleague has a memory of that gown appearing in Threads, possibly in the last 2 years.
An online search of the archives didn’t turn up anything, and I can’t find it in my *library* [only goes back to issue 127].
I’d appreciate any information you might be able to share with me about this gown.
Many thanks, Robyn
