Three major caveats here make this volume questionable for the historian, and requiring cross-authentication for faire costuming: (1) it is designed to be "simple" for the knowledgeable home-sewer or journeyman costumer, which Winter interprets as license to use such anachronisms as "hidden zippers" and elastic (she does give more appropriate closure options in at least some cases); (2) some of Winter's assumptions are a bit off (for example, that for middle-uppper and upper classes the Spanish surcote was worn directly over the shift, rather than over the loose kirtle); (3) the book was last updated in 1987 and is therefore lacking the input of more recent research, much of it based on primary sources.
All in all, it's a great *idea* book, more useful to the performer than to the historian.
