My, oh, my is this ever a handsome book. Joan Severa has done an amazing job of using photographs and details on fashion to make this time in history come alive. I am amazed at her knowledge of every little detail on the clothing.
This book will be a great resource for me on trying to date some of the old photos in my collection.
I do feel sorry for the women in our history...they had to endure some pretty uncomfortable fittings to be in the height of fashion. I'll take my loose fitting clothes anyday!
