4.0 out of 5 stars Historical Colonial French Dress March 30, 2000
Historicallly accurate renderings of period colonial dress most often come from extant clothing of the period and are beneficial to study both for construction and fabric content. Mary Moyars Johnson and Judy Forbes have done an excellent job in detailing and explaining the every day usage of a variety of Colonial French clothing for re-enactors and historians looking for accurate historical descriptions. The patterns are easy to copy and enlarge and are explained in enough detail to encourage most seamstresses to duplicate a functional garment that is accurate to the period. Well done!

4.0 out of 5 stars good overview December 31, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
this is a brief overview of french reenacting. it has okay directions for costume making. helps if you have some understanding of how to read sewing patterns. most of the pictures are good enough that you can figure out how to piece things to gather if the directions do not make sense. this is a good starting point for those getting into early/frontier french history in America.
