Wonderful full-color photos of extant clothing from 1860-1940 with comments on construction and patterns taken from the items which sewers can use to make their own versions. Wonderful resource for anyone studying fashion of this era, even if you are not looking to recreate the clothing.

It is the older edition of this title and it was the first of its kind and an enormusley important book for dress historians. Kompared to the revised and enlarged new edition published by the school of historical dress, the old book is printed in black and white and contains fewer costumes and thus fewer pages

This review is for the extended and revised edition of Patterns of Fashion 2.
Drafted from excisting ladies garments from 1860-1940 there are "patterns". Also there are colour fotographs of these garments, explanations of stitches used, pictures of contemporary persons in similar garments, fotographs of insides and linings in garments. If you want to compare a garment you have to try and date it; this is an exellent book. If you are a professional seamstress or tailor aiming at recreating similar garments this is an exellent book. If you are a beginner to sewing and want costumes like these then you need to complement this with other books and preferably an experienced seewer to guide you, but this book is still a wonderful inspiration.… (mais)
