    There are two versions of this book, one has patterns and the other the one I bought doesn t.This is a guide and historical story about the types of clothes that people wore in the 19th century because so many things no longer exists like banyans and the crazy cravat knots I doubt that people need so many different clothes and changes, but it maybe because this was pre TV and pre Internet and rich people really didn t have anything better to do with themselves.Fun pictures and stories.3 sta There are two versions of this book, one has patterns and the other the one I bought doesn t.This is a guide and historical story about the types of clothes that people wore in the 19th century because so many things no longer exists like banyans and the crazy cravat knots I doubt that people need so many different clothes and changes, but it maybe because this was pre TV and pre Internet and rich people really didn t have anything better to do with themselves.Fun pictures and stories.3 stars

    Maclochlainn writes in clear prose which makes the instructions seem easy to follow I haven t made any of the patterns yet, but am interested in delving into the world of tailoring This book seems like a good place to start.Things that stood out for me beginners exercises in the appendices and modern sources for period accurate fabrics which are necessary to get period looks.

    Historically interesting and information packed, it ll give you a real sense of just how much expertise a Victorian tailor must have had in order to make mens garments It also makes you aware of how hot and itchy and sweaty most Victorians must have been Still, to get the most out of the book, you probably need to know a good bit about sewing in the first place otherwise, much of it is kind of gibberish.
