This book has a lot of sketches of dresses (and the pattern pieces they are made from), fascinating snippets of historical information through quotations, and some plates. It is a rich source of ideas for decoration, and basic pattern shapes. It would be frustrating to try and enlarge the pieces with a view to making the clothes, but should be an excellent inspiration and guide for a seamstress with some experience. It does provide delightful details on clothing, fabric, and thoughts of life and fashion from the various periods. I would have liked more details on accessories, but am very happy with the book.
