Synopsis: Learn to draft and cut patterns for women s clothing from a period spanning 400 years of history, from 1535 to 1900, including the key style elements from each era, from farthingales to crinolines, ruffs to leg o mutton sleeves. With this inspirational book you can draw on a library of basic patterns to create perfectly fitted bodices, sleeves, skirts, jackets, and much more, and the author s unique drafting method ensures that the patterns can be adapted to fit wearers of all shapes and sizes. Easy-to-follow instructions and detailed diagrams mean you ll see great results every time, and each pattern includes a range of variations to help you get period details exactly right.

Lavishly illustrated with historical paintings and portraits from each era, this book is ideal for costume students, professional costumiers, and anyone who wants to recreate authentic yet wearable period styles.
