In short, this is my favorite costuming book, and its accurate too!
Whether you need to make historically-accurate reenactments or a fantasy-themed Renaissance Fair costume, this book will be a great help. I also learned a few hand-sewing techniques that can be useful in other sewing projects. And this new edition contains lots of gorgeous new color photos showing examples of finished outfits with thorough explanations about the what and why, plus new patterns not included in the first edition. I love this book and I'm happy to have bought it. It's a great addition to your sewing/costumes library.
