Format: Paperback
I was recommended this book by professional costume milliner Louise Macdonald, who has worked on BBC productions such as the wonderful Pride and Prejudice. This book starts in the 11th century and is broken up into the relevant periods from that time to the modern day. Written descriptions of the "trends" provide context to issues of occasion, rank or status. B/W sketches are provide showing good detail, though normally only the front or side view. An excellent resource for costume designers. This Dover edition is dated 2006.

This is a great resource book and you can use the pictures for many projects such as: embroidery, enlarge and trace onto a fabric background and then embroider.

The paperback version of this book may be great, but the Kindle version has no pictures!!! Don't waste your money on the ebook. Buy the hard copy if you want the illustrations - as all of us do.

I needed to use this book for drawing purposes and they make it so easy for you. This is a great book that focuses on the hats of the British Empire from as far back as the Migration period and works it way all the way up to the 80's. It's a great book if you want to see how hats evolves from time to time and they write ups for each hat are easy to follow and find the matching hat to due to bolded texts and clearly labels sections. Just remember that the book only deals with Britain and nowhere else. An excellent book. I've very pleased.

Wonderful book. Very nicely organized. Perfect resource for those making historical costumes, doll clothes, art work etc. I wish we could have a book organized just like this for other items of historical clothing.... there are other books out there on undergarments etc, but it would be nice to have a series ....just like this..... on shoes, undergarments and so on through history!

This is a nice book for a costumer. But the title is a little misleading since it is only about English hats and headdresses. Of course, more or less the same styles were worn at more or less the same time, but still I can't find the Italian Renaissance or the very distinctive 'Landsknecht'. To sum it up : there's nothing wrong with the book, only with the title.

Useful for basics.

I have referred to this book over and over again for basic pattern shapes when making patterns for stitched hats from scratch although the instructions are a little vague sometimes.

I sold my copy once but had to replace it quickly as it was obviously more useful than I originally thought !
