4.0 out of 5 stars Useful book, 12 Sep 2011
This review is from: Seventeenth-Century Women's Dress Patterns (Womens Dress Patterns 1) (Hardcover)
I am very happy with this book. I am not sure how helpful it is to someone new to historical costume but I am always grateful for further insight and knowledge regarding historical costumes. I use all of Janet Arnold's books already and this adds to them. The step by step working out of the embroidery stitches is wonderful but frustrating as I am still making a hash of plait stitch but would never have understood how to do it at all but for this book! The pattern I used was easily graded up to full size and worked well. I'd recommend this book as an adjunct to others. Start with Janet Arnold and add books like this to your collection for the sheer pleasure of them. I will be buying any other works like this to add to my body of technical know how.
