What books do you rely on the most?
- Here is a question for the group. What are your favorite/ most
important books to go to when you are constructing a
garment/hat/pouch? I am working on building my "library" of research
resources. I about to move to Korea for a year where the resources
are limited. So, I am just curious as to what others see as helpful.

is set (barely) within the Ottoman Empire. For me, I do stuff all over
Europe and throughout the SCA time period, depending on my mood and what
friends need. I rely heavily on archeology reports and extant garments.

My September-February persona is 16th century and English and for dressing Katherine I tend to use a combination of _Patterns of Fashion_ by Janet Arnold and _The Well-Dressed Peasant_ by Drea Leed. March-August I still do 16th century, but my persona is Indian. For dressing Asma I tend to rely on a combination of books on Deccani Art and _Saris:An Illustrated Guide to the Art of Indian Draping_ by Chantal Boulanger. The latter isn't really "historical" per se, but has excellent instructions for draping a large number of different saris and is invaluble when reconstructing historical styles.
