Re: Book Giveaway: Seventeenth-Century Women's Dress Patterns

I adorein historical fashions and foundations and study them with great interest. I used to design wedding gowns with a historical slant and found books like this invaluable.
I have opened a small sewing shop/boutique and am finding my feet, but I am confident I shaould like to offer sewing classes for Brides and encourage them to make their own gowns. This book would be a great asset to my collection. I would like to open a lrage sewing school with cafe etc, but one step at a time!
Thank you threads. Andrea.

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: "Underwear Fashion in Detail"

Wow, I adore past fashions and love to look at old garments. Corsets have such a sexy appeal and everyone loves to look at them and try them on. I have designed a few and they are such fun to wear. The workmanship that went into theses Victorian/edwardian corsets is simply amazing. I could look at theses images all night!
