Description

I found a copy of The Cut Of Women's Clothes 1600-1930 at my local library and fell in love. The book took two weeks to arrive. I had to contact the seller for a tracking number as one was not provided at first. You get what you pay for I guess.

The Cut of Womens Clothes is a fantastic book! Full of great patterns and compelling information on dress of the time, as well as personal letters etc discussing dress. My only complaint is that more modern reproductions of this book do not contain the same quality of print for the photographs and prints. The pictures are not as sharp and as full of contrast.

I have had "The Cut of Men's Clothes", by the same author, for years. This book is even better. It has every pattern diagram I was looking for.

We received a very poor photocopy on cheap paper rather than the real book. Text is fuzzy and the photos are dark and muddy. We are familiar with the look and feel of the real book. Returned it and went to a reliable vendor of art and design books. It may be a safer bet to buy one of the used shelf worn library versions if you have to buy from Amazon.

Best design book in my collection

Fabulous book. This is the most comprehensive of ANY book I have read on the subject. It's expensive, but worth every penny.

A great deception!
I pay $100.81 for a hardcover book, and I received a photocopied one.
It is a fraud! Is this legal?
This is the first costume text I purchased (even before knowing I was going to go to school for costume design), and even after receiving and collecting loads of other texts on costume and the history thereof, this is still the best basic book I've come across. And, yes, I actually read it instead of just looking at the pics (of which there are many, many, great examples of historical dress). Although not entirely scintillatingly written (hard to do with a sometimes dry subject such as costume history, it has to be said), it is full of information that I wouldn't have otherwise known (and I've been fascinated by clothing all my life).
Across the arc of the book, one can discern the evolution of clothing, and it provides a good background for noting the changes across the years and why they were made. There is a lot covered within, and I feel it's a great source from which to start any kind of costume research.
