First Sentence
Women's fashions of the last years of Queen Elizabeth's reign continued to be worn for a time after James I came to the throne; yet during the first quarter of the seventeenth century there came a period of transition bringing with it a gradual elimination of the earlier extravagances. Read the first page

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By D. Hilton on 7 Sept. 2009
Format: Hardcover
This book has a lot of sketches of dresses (and the pattern pieces they are made from), fascinating snippets of historical information through quotations, and some plates. It is a rich source of ideas for decoration, and basic pattern shapes. It would be frustrating to try and enlarge the pieces with a view to making the clothes, but should be an excellent inspiration and guide for a seamstress with some experience. It does provide delightful details on clothing, fabric, and thoughts of life and fashion from the various periods. I would have liked more details on accessories, but am very happy with the book.
