Format: Paperback
This is an excellent reference guide for Lady Civil War Reenactors who want to create beautiful day dresses and ball gowns. The book has detailed descriptions of each dress. A true Godey's dress was for the lady of wealth, however many women of average means subscribed to Godey's to get ideas for the dresses they wore. Each page will give you an idea of colors, styles and types of fabrics used. This book is a must along with "Who Wore What" for a true insight into women's fashions of the 1860's

Format: Paperback
This book is beautiful. It is a very helpful reference and it is just fun to look at. It was also great to have the description of each of the outfits. This book is much more detailed than the "80 Godey's Full-Color Fashion Plates (1838-1880)" by JoAnne Olian, but then I liked all the full -colored as well.

Format: Paperback
Great book for finding out what they really wore for dressy occasions during the Civil War Era and just prior. Afterwards they did not have the money or the material to do this, but it is lovely to see what they did before the war. Reenacter's who do not wish to spend a lot of money on a gown from the wrong era need to see what is correct before some dressmaker puts them into whatever pattern that SHE likes to make! RESEARCH is the key.

Very informative book. Very much enjoyed. Also takes you back to see what the magazine may have looked like back then.

First, let me say I bought the Kindle edition. I was apprehensive about how the color plates would look when put into this form, but I needn't have worried. The color of the plates comes through wonderfully.
This is a book for every costume historian or enthusiast's shelf. It gives a wonderful overview of the fashions of the day. Now I will have to purchase a physical copy to put on my shelf!
