Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0896762823, Paperback)

A stunning collection of the most iconic garments of the 20th century, with 25 patterns of key garments that defined their era from 1910 through to 1990. The book features a range of historically accurate garments perfect for recreating the coveted vintage look from a 1920s flapper dress through to a 1940s Utility suit, a 1950s jive skirt and 1970s bell-bottom trousers.

Detailed, scaled patterns are provided with full instructions and notes on fabrics, techniques and colors appropriate to the period. The patterns are accompanied by a fascinating commentary on the social history behind the clothing, as well as practical notes on the construction of the garment and what underwear and accessories to wear to recreate your chosen vintage look down to the last detail. Wonderful illustrations and photographs of period dress accompany the practical information, ensuring authenticity and accuracy. This is an essential book for any dressmaker interested in recreating period dress, especially film and theater costume-makers, but also fashion designers and fashionistas looking for authentic and individual vintage garments.
