Book Description

9 Sep 2010
Imagine being able to follow your passion, bring the past alive, help others - and make money doing it. This is a book about HOW TO DO THAT! Sewing is one of the joys of life. But how many costumes can you make for yourself? Sewing for others not only gives you a reason to research and re-create vintage apparel, it gives others the joy of wearing clothing from another era. I am a costumer. I have re-created vintage clothing for the theater, for docents of museums and historic properties, and for people portraying characters from the past, including Biblical times. This book contains lists of suppliers and reference material. You'll also find valuable tips and tricks of the trade to make your work easier.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite what I thought it would be. 20 April 2012
Verified Purchase
There wasn't much info about this book when I ordered it, so it wasn't quite what I was expecting. I think of vintage as stuff from the 20th century (30's / 40's / 50's / 60's /70's) but this book covers Victorian and Edwardian costumes. Also it is American so all info about suppliers etc isn't very helpful.
Lastly, considering it was written in 2001, it looks like it has been typed on an old manual type writer, with a few black and white photos - could have been presented much better.
