I would also say the dresses here are a bit more "specific" in taste than those in PoF1, which seem to be more representative of their periods. However, it's easy to adapt a bodice or skirt pattern to your specific taste, and this book contains many of those. I also personally like the period pattern and cutting guides in the front. Lifted directly from period magazines and patterns, these double the number of patterns and styles you get with the book, if you are willing to scale them yourself.
Great illustrations and drawings make construction details clear even without reading the text, but this is NOT a book for someone looking to peruse some pretty dresses from earlier eras.
