I have but one complaint: there is no mention made of pocket hoops, false rumps, panniers, or skirt supports of any kind! I find this a huge omission given the time period covered. Granted, the book is aimed at re-enactors, and your average farmer's wife probably wouldn't go around wearing panniers while milking the goats. But she might wear pocket hoops on a trip into town, to church, or to any social event. Yet there's no mention of these items, and that is a chapter I sorely missed.
Great book, excellent information, and other than the absence of panniers and pocket hoops, it's a wonderful education on how to dress for the 1700s.

Good information, but very thin, and not quite as detailed as I had hoped. This is basically a pamphlet.Published 5 months ago by S. Weythman
