- Beyond "From The Neck Up" which is excellent, the three books I have
travelled with for years are all by Norah Waugh. They are "The Cut of
Men's Clothes: 1600 - 1900", "The Cut of Women's Clothes: 1600 -
1930", and "Corsets and Crinolines". Janet Arnold also has a wonderful
series called "Patterns of Fashion". I own several of the series, and
they have proven invaluable.
