5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you wanted to know....., 16 Feb 2011
By 
This review is from: Classic and Modern Fabrics: The Complete Illustrated Sourcebook (Hardcover)
This is an amazing book full of fascinating information. All those niggling questions answered, like what was that tarlatan dress they wear in Little Women? (it's a stiffened muslin) and who'd have thought that the word "seersucker" comes form the Persian "shir o sakkar", meaning "milk and sugar". I want to go out and find all these fabrics and make things NOW.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic book, 10 Sep 2010
This review is from: Classic and Modern Fabrics: The Complete Illustrated Sourcebook (Hardcover)
This book is fantastic and I would recommend this to anyone interested in fabrics. There is so much interesting information about different types of fabric and as a weaver I think the structure drafts are a very welcomed added bonus.

4.0 out of 5 stars Illustrations, 21 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Classic and Modern Fabrics: The Complete Illustrated Sourcebook (Hardcover)
An excellent book but for one major error that I have found. The description for tatting if fine but the labelled illustration is definitely NOT tatting.
All illustrations are very clear but so magnified as to distort the look of the fabric. It would be useful to have an actual size picture with each one alongside.
