    One thought on “Costume Close-Up: Clothing Construction and Pattern, 1750-1790”

    1. Linda Baumgarten's books on the collection at Colonial Williamsburg can't be beat, and this one I am particularly fond of. Of all of her books, this one has the most effective use layout that I've seen - it combines historical facts, primary sources, pictures, and pattern layouts with the textual descriptions and close up photographs of the garments in the collection. What it may lack in variety, it makes up in depth. In my opinion, a must-own for 18th century reenactors.

    2. Love this book, even though most of the photography is black and white. It has several detailed accounts of existing Colonial garments, with pictures. Very helpful in making my current outfit. It wasn't nearly so interesting to me before I actually got deeper into the research stage, though; probably wouldn't be very interesting for anyone who doesn't do historical sewing.

    3. A very detailed look at the art of Costumes. I have a greater understanding to the way shapes and layers changed over periods of time. Lots of illustrations.

    4. This book has been so simple and helpful in my journey to making an 18th century outfit (dress, stays, pockets, etc). I can't recommend it enough.
