Re: the book...
- Yes that's the one.
It's a great resource, and gives patterns - albeit patterns for
stage productions (not nessecarily the same as period construction).
I personally adore the fabric swatches they show at the back
detailing the types of prints used. The first chapter goes through a
lot of the period material used to determine the patterns.... so
it's a lovely way of quickly finding primary source materials on the
topic. And babble fish will give an idea of what the captions say.
You just lucked out that I had taken the book with me to work.
