Seventeenth-Century Women’s Dress Patterns - Book One

This breathtakingly detailed book from the V&A presents dress patterns, construction details, embroidery and making instructions (including a knitting pattern and lace) for 15 pieces from a 17th-century British woman's wardrobe. Step-by-step drawings of the construction sequence and scale patterns for each garment enable readers to accurately reconstruct them. Multiple photographs and even X-rays reveal hidden elements of the clothes. This first book in a new series takes the physical examination and study of historical clothing to a new depth and degree of detail, using the expertise of designers, tailors, and makers from London's Shakespeare's Globe Theatre.
