My mother and I recently went to see the musical rendition of “Dirty Dancing,” and the costuming was amazing. There is a scene where Baby’s sister is getting dressed and she puts on not one, not two, but three crinolines. After the play was over, I asked mom how accurate the costuming was and she confirmed that multiple crinolines, gloves and hats were a way of life.
