From the bookshelf: Draping Period Costumes: Classical Greek to Victorian
Thanks to Chantal for the heads up on this new book. While I haven't actually made up any of the garments yet I've been impressed with my first pass through. It has detailed draping instructions for costumes from the Greek to Victorian eras for women AND men and is only $19.22 for the kindle version or $34.95 hardcover. It starts off with basic draping instructions and step by step on setting up a dress form for draping and then goes garment by garment through the years. While this book is geared towards theatrical costumers I can see it finding a place next to Hunnisett's books on many a historical costumer's book shelf. Given it's a draping book there are no scaled patterns, so I bought the ebook to save space, money, and give myself a nice costume reading option while on vacation!
