I am disappointed overall. I had an expectation for wonderful images and details of these images. Whereas there are some it is mainly a single shot of one area of the garment taken up close and then a tiny technical sketch to accompany. The information is good yet it too follows the pattern of just being snippet not real detail.

Very enjoyable read. Would have liked to have seen a full picture of the garment and then a few shots focused on details. Seeing the detail without a view of the entire garment makes it a little more difficult to appreciate the whole.

On the whole a good investment for those who like fashion and history.

No photos of the full piece-only close ups of a detail and a line drawing. And the bare minimum of photos -this could have been PACKED with inspiration. Instead it is just has a bit of inspiration here & there. Disappointment.
