Dress history and handbook in one
This is the second title in the series "Historical clothing - from the inside out", where historical dress is rendered in detail, covering both male and female clothing.
A manual for women’s clothing provides a detailed description of women’s fashion in late 15th century northern Europe. From next-to-skin undergarments to everything worn on top of it – headwear, accessories, hairstyles and more. The book pays particular attention to how the garments were tailored, and how they functioned together – the dress profile.
The book is illustrated throughout with historical paintings that provide an overall picture as perceived by contemporary eyes. In addition, modern reconstructions are pictured, along with clear and informative illustrations by Anna Emanuelsson, giving you both pattern drawings and a clear guide to properly pinning your veil.
