Description

The Art of Fashion: 1850 - 1859 -- Dress, Sewing, and Clothes Care Advice
Compiled and edited by me, Deb Salisbury
8.5" x 11" paperback book -- 324 pages with over 490 period illustrations, printed by Createspace.

This book compiles sewing and fashion advice given in books and magazines during the 1850s, given in the words of writers of that time. Each entry shows the name and date of the periodical quoted. It has three sections:
1) Sewing tips and fashion advice
2) Fabric cleaning and care.
3) Bibliography of magazines and books I found useful.

It is intended for costume historians, Victorian reenactors, historical writers and history buffs.

During the 1850s, the art of fashion was studied by every woman who wanted to create her own wardrobe. A lady learned why changes were made, when they went out of date, and how to recreate the styles she liked. Most of all, she studied what the current rules were, even though they seemed to change monthly, especially for the most fashion conscious women. This book shows many of the fashions she looked at.

Thank you for looking at my book!
