Vintage Dress Patterns of the 20th Century Summary

Vintage Dress Patterns of the 20th Century: dressmaking from flapper dress to the mini skirt by Anne Tyrrell

A stunning collection of the most iconic garments of the 20th century, these vintage patterns chart the 30 key garments that defined their era. The book features a range of historically accurate garments, including a 1920s flapper dress, a 1940s New Look skirt, a 1950s jive skirt, a 1970s maxi coat, and many more.

Wonderful illustrations and photographs of period dress are accompanied by practical information on notable features, underwear and accessories for each period. Scale patterns follow for each outfit shown, complete with detailed notes on making up, using techniques appropriate to the period. A grid for enlargement of the pattern pieces is provided together with full instructions.

This is an essential book for any dressmaker interested in recreating period dress, especially film and theatre costume-makers, but also fashion designers and fashionistas looking for authentic and individual vintage garments.
