The book is designed to serve as a help, guidance and instruction to all those who would like to venture into the marvellous world of Victorian dressmaking. I hope it will be useful to a theatre costumier, TV costume drama technician, fashion student, historical reenactor, a steampunk, a cosplayer or a home sewer with a passion for history. In short – to all people who would like to create a quality fashion garment form the Victorian era.
The richly illustrated book covers the patterns, cut and asssembly of a variety of women's clothing from 1838 to 1902. Both modern and historical sewing techniques, tools and materials are discussed and shown step by step through clear instructions and illustrations.
