Evolution of Fashion – Hill & Bracknell

The Evolution of Fashion:

by Margot Hill and Peter.A.Bracknell


This is pretty good for basic but accurate fashion drawings. The Patterns included in this book, we think, are not so much taken from actual garments but interpretations using modern pattern cutting techniques. But it is a brilliant book to be able to see the general shape of pattern pieces needed for certain items and it covers a good. broad base of periods.
