Review:

This book takes a leap back in time to the very beginnings of clothing. It is sprinkled with important inventions and discoveries which had a significant impact on the production of clothing. Important milestones such as the invention of the cotton gin by Eli Whitney as well as the first modern sewing machines are highlighted. Readers are introduced to popular fads, from jelly shoes to leg warmers. A time line is featured to help readers understand how fashion has evolved. Fashion-forward icons like Coco Chanel and Princess Diana are named as influential women of style. Tracing the trends through the years leaves many of us wondering what we were thinking when we proudly wore our bell-bottomed pants. This book provides an interesting look at fashion, the social status that is associated with clothes, and the discoveries that revolutionized the fashion industry. Fashion enthusiasts will find this an entertaining and informative look at how we have dressed through the years. --Children's Literature Comprehensive Database, January 2007
