This book is a comprehensive guide to creating period dress. It consists of a series of books detailing the construction of garments, undergarments and outer garments. The main thrust is women's dress, but in several periods, some of the garments are applicable to both men's and women's costumes and there are also specific items of men's wear described and patterned. As well as being accurate, Jean Hunnisett's patterns have been prepared so that they can be readily made up using today's fabrics and sewing methods, and fit the modern female figure. This is the second book concentratin on outer garments. The first book covered: Cloaks, Capes, Stoles and Wadded Mantles. This book deals with: Dominos, Dolmans, Coats, Pelises, Spencers, Calashes, Hoods and Bonnets. It is abundantly illustrated by drawings and photographs and includes scaled patterns. Whether you are an amateur, a student or a professional costume maker, this book, and the series it belongs to, is an invaluable source of patterns and techniques.
