5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Present, 24 Nov 2013
I was given a copy as a present and have since bought 3 more as Christmas presents.

The book is written in an easy read, lively style. I particularly liked 'quite a knack with fabric management' with regards to he intricacies of visiting the WC! Though it can be dipped into in a light manner it is also extremely informative about how clothing affected all aspects of women's lives and not just the wealthy elite.

An aspect not made sufficiently strongly in the promotion information is that nearly all the pictures come from the author's private collection therefore not available for view elsewhere.

Xmas present for daughter. She is a costume historian & seemed very pleased as reproduction of an original publication. She has not had time to actually use the content yet.

Excellent value for money ladies helmet. Daughter delighted - she says it is easy to adjust and the rear light is a added bonus. It arrived promptly.
