Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This seems to be an expensive book and I've been reluctant to bite the bullet and buy it unseen. Why did I hesitate? The work of Janet Arnold is well-known to me and this book has to be the culmination of all her excellent research and painstaking recording of historical costume.

For those interested in the re-creation of costume; in the history of the manufacture of dress; in embroidery; in the politics and social history of fashion; in the Tudor period; in the life and times of Elizabeth 1st, - the list of potential delighted readers is endless. The interesting text relating not only to the garments and accessories worn by the Queen but also to the craftsmen who designed and manufactured the items is all supported by convincing and fascinating evidence and illustrations. A detailed inventory of the Queens wardrobe created in 1660 transcribed by Janet for our amazement completes the book.

I have a large collection of books relating to the history of dress. This book contains much information and detail I have not found elsewhere,including other excellent books by the same author such as 'Patterns Of Fashion'. (If you aren't aware of this series of books, check them out ,especially if you interested in costume-making to replica standard).

An absolute marvel and a fitting tribute to Janet Arnold; who has to rank as one of the finest costume and fashion historians to date. If you are thinking of buying this book - don't wait any longer -do it now!!

I just received my copy of this book today, and cannot recommend it enough. The level of research and detail Ms. Arnold has provided in this work is well worth both the price and wait. It is truely the definitive work on the clothing and fashion of Elizabeth I and her era.

Janet Arnold is the goddess of English Costume. This book contains all of the little details that separate authentic clothing recreation from just a costume.
