Fantastic and Useable guide,
This review is from: The Tudor Tailor: Reconstructing Sixteenth-Century Dress (Paperback)
I own several books pertaining to re-enactment costume and this is one of the first that I have found to be genuinely workable. There are no obscure and impossible to come by materials and the instructions are thorough and easy to follow.
As a British book, I also found it easier to follow as the authors referred to products by the names I am used to rather than the unfamiliar ones used by our american cousins.
The book is well rounded - it doesn't just teach you how to make the costume, it also teaches you how to wear it and even how to do your hair! Altogether a wonderful and brilliantly illustrated book.
