Costume in Detail: Women's Dress, 1730-1930 by Nancy Bradfield
With 370 drawings and highly detailed studies, this is an invaluable source of reference for information to all those concerned with period dress, history and the theatre. These studies are entirely from private collections; only a mere handful have ever been exhibited or seen by the general public. Several are too frail or too soiled ever to be put on view and for that reason, they have been studied in detail before their delicate charm is rotted away and lost to us for all time.
New Fashion Figure Templates (Paperback) by Patrick John Ireland
The essential book for any fashion student or designer. Over 200 figure templates: figures in movement, with attitude and in classic elegant poses - from a variety of angles, full-length poses, three-quarter length poses, back views and front-on poses. It covers templates for men, women, teens and children. The figures may be copied or photocopied and enlarged from the book or used as a guide to develop your own illustrations.
