In this reference, a costumer can use the point-projection system to recreate the historic pieces. ( )

This book was originally published in the early 20th. Some of Kohler's ideas are now considered inaccurate, including the clothing patterns he created. Nonetheless, it is a useful book, as long as one augments it with other, more recent studies. ( )

Personally, not that great. I rather use something like Costume in Detail, or 1000 Years of Fashion, if you can find it. ( )

This is a good resource for costumers; filled with authentic pieces found throughout history, and well referenced.
