Re: [Italian Renaissance Costuming] Book quandary
- I have Dressing Renaissance Florence and its excellent! It doesnt' go into the construction of garments at all. But it tells about the guilds, why people wore what they did, the meaning of color, what types of fabrics were used, it has a glossary of all the italian names of different items used in making garments, what went into making garments...like wedding trousseaus etc. It gives a great insight to the whole sub culture of clothing in Renaissance Florence.

I'm going to be buying a costuming book soon, and I'm stuped as to
which to buy. I've got a $25 gift card and I'm certain that i'll be
paying more than just that for any of these books. I've done primarily
victorian costuming but i'm planning to make an Italian Ren gown for
the summer. Here's what I'm trying to decide between. I'd appreciate
any input I can get.
