The National Garment Cutter Book of Diagrams: fabulous patterns from 1888

Many years ago, I needed to make myself a costume involving a bustle. I had plenty of pictures of the real thing, but couldn’t find any clues about how to start the construction. This book from 1888 was just what I needed. It has all the patterns you need to recreate an entire wardrobe.

Not that I need things like that any more. But it doesn’t stop me from having a good look!
