Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Great War Fashion: Tales from the History Wardrobe (Hardcover)
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.
