5.0 out of 5 stars Great help.
This book is a great help with 1940's fashions. I do re enact at 1940's events. I think I might wear this book out.

Written in a chatty, informal style this book covers most areas needed to get a quick overview of 1940s fashion. (It's very short, only 91 pages.) The photographs are small and quite a few are blurry, low contrast or both so it's difficult to see details.

Written in a chatty, informal style this book covers most areas needed to get a quick overview of 1940s fashion. (It's very short, only 91 pages.) The photographs are small and quite a few are blurry, low contrast or both so it's difficult to see details.

I would recommend this book for people who want to go to a costume party or dance, want to get their clothing reasonably correct and don't want to do much reading. For this sort of occasion this book would be perfect (just ignore the section on hair as the modern models look more like they come from the 1980s than the 1940s!)

For people who are interested in more in depth research - everything in this book is covered in any book on 1940s fashion (except for the links on websites for research, shopping, patterns and seamstresses etc.)

My friend loves her book, as we're into the 1940's. She'll use it to style herself for re-enactment events this year.
