Review: Authentic Victorian Dressmaking TechniquesUser Review - Goodreads
This is a GREAT book for anyone interested in authentic sewing techniques. It teaches terms and shows you pictures of what it is suppose to look like. A lot of step by step directions/photos. I have enjoyed every word I've read and every picture I've reviewed.
