Yesterday I was gifted the beautiful book, Fashion: A History from the 18th to the 20th Century from the Kyoto Fashion Institute. I am in love with this book. I've been wanting this book and a kind lady in the costume construction class I TA for offered it to me, because she had two copies. I was so excited!
Let me show you why. Here are some examples of the gorgeous costumes shown in the book:
And these aren't even the best pictures. So many gorgeous things to look at. It makes me want to drop everything and try to recreate one of these beauties.
Being a sewing TA sure is working well for me. A new book, relearning good technique, inheriting a dress form (so it's a girls size 10, but it's better than nothing!) This crazy, busy semester happens to also be wonderful!
