Yipeee we’re PUBLISHED!

So the last few years of seriously researching 18th century sewing techniques have finally paid off and produced a first book!

This book studys and concentrates on a gown remade at some point during the 1750s and 1760s.

The book provides a photo heavy study of the gown, a look at the stitches and threads used on the gown. It also provides a scaled down pattern of the original gown plus a Stpattern and making book of a 1760s gown by HandBound Costumesep-by-Step guide teaching how to make the gown using the EXACT methods that the original seamstress used.

It also talks a bit about the history of the night-gown and how it developed, plus there’s a chapter taking a deeper look at the alterations made on the gown.

All in all – it’s a useful and informative book on this c.1760s yellow night-gown!
