Fashion students and costume makers buy this!!!
on 18 December 2005
If you are into 17th and 18th century costume then this is the book for you. It shows you in very good detail how cuffs, collars, pockets, button stands, seam detail, pin tucks etc of this period were done at the time. The photos are all excellent quality close ups and there are full garnment flats for each one as well. I am a degree fashion student and love to design from this period. Now I have a much better understanding of how to make my designs into actual garnments. I think its a great book.
