I found the designs and patterns in Ms. Kidd's book very accurate and easy to execute. Some of the designs, particularly those from the the Middle Ages were beautifully made and outstanding. Nevertheless, the summaries describing the periods were extremely brief. I also hoped to find essential information about the materials that were used in the original designs centuries ago, but I guess I'll have to keep on looking elsewhere. If you are a beginner, if you need ideas and already have fair knowledge of sewing techniques, this book is definitely for you.

I was so happy to find this book and I've been doing costumes for twenty years. This is a concise overview of the historical periods- a starting point for doing in depth research if you're a beginner but also great as a quick reference if you already know the periods. The easy "cheat" way to sew costumes if worth the price of the book alone. Thanks to Mary Kidd for a truly useful costume resource

I have had this book for about 5 years - the length of time I have been sewing historic garb. It has some useful info, and nice illustrations. It is rather clear cut as well, but if you are looking for specifics and acurate costumes this wouldnt be the best choice. Sort of a quick and dirty guide. All in all, useful info for all kinds of costuming, but one can find a much more comprehensive, period specific book for a bit more money. Works well as a companion book.
