Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker

Jennifer Chiaverini presents a stunning account of the friendship that blossomed between Mary Todd Lincoln and her seamstress, Elizabeth “Lizzie” Keckley, a former slave who gained her professional reputation in Washington, D.C. by outfitting the city’s elite. Keckley made history by sewing for the First Lady within the White House, a trusted witness to many private moments between the President and his wife.
