This is a fantastic book, with drawings and complete, measured, gridded patterns of 63 extant women's garments and ensembles from the 1920's from various museum collections, with supplemental material and some sewing instructions. Using these patterns, one can make up one's own reproductions of an entire 1920's woman's wardrobe. It's not for beginning sewers, but is not so difficult that you have to be very advanced to make sense of it.

I want to introduce you to one of the most amazing sewing books I own, Women’s Wear of the 1930’s by Ruth S. So this book of complete patterns taken from real garments from the 30s is just a treat. The authors not only supply complete patterns for a huge variety of vintage garments, but describe in detail the fabric and colors of each garment. The downsides are that the patterns are at a 1/8 scale and must be enlarged and there are no sewing instructions to speak of, which makes it pretty impractical for most home sewers.

These books gave me a lot of inpsiration, as well as practical tips for reproducing the clothes shown. For instance, the author used Wolf dress forms for many of these garments and put the size form she used down in on many of the drafts. Be mindful a form size is NOT included for ALL the costumes. Use of a mannequin or some kind is essential for getting the details right. Some of these original garments had been custom made, including a couple of "going away" outfits. As with Janet Arnold's examples, for indiviual women, not standard sizes. Be prepared to use one inch gridded easel pads, the scale is one eighth to the inch.

Photographs of living models are shown throughout, as well as period photos. Alas, no photos of the originals. Claire McCardell's wool knit pantsuit from the thirties is amazingly up to date. Another reason I would have liked to have seen a photo. Both books in this series are well worth the investment.

It is a good book for ideas but I found I had to make changes to get a good fit, so I wouldn't recommend this book for a beginner or for someone with little experience of dress patterns

very nice!

A useful book with a lot of patterns and illustrations, but no girdles patterns, which is a pity.

I asked for this book for my birthday and was delighted to receive it.

This book is everything I'd hoped it would be - Kendra's review saying it was like PoF for the 1920s was incredibly helpful as I was familiar with PoF 3 and 4. I really appreciate how the garments are divided into 4 sections - dresses; ensembles (suits, jackets, skirts, and blouses); casual (sportswear and bathing suits); and lingerie (lounging ensembles, nightgowns, dressing gowns, and underwear.Appendix 4 which is the glossary is especially helpful when it comes to understanding what something like seco silk is, or tub silk, or pongee. Or any of the fabrics/clothing items really.

I do have one minor gripe about this book and it's that sometimes it says very specifically what type of fabric it is along with the content, sometimes it doesn't. Like "ivory silk shantung tennis dress," "black wool twill jacket," versus "pink silk pajamas: tunic and pants," "red wool two-piece bathing suit." I want to know what type of red wool, darn it! Is it a knit? The other wool bathing suits in the section are.

Most of the items really are practical dress and nothing too fancy, which I love. In fact this book led me to purchase the next in the series because I'd love to find some practical 1930s patterns as well! Hope it's as great as this one.

This is a scholarly book aimed at theatre costumers. aLl of the clothing & patterns are taken from existing garments & cover may areas of dress, except for evening dress. The authors chose to concentrate on daywear because it is used more in the theatre.

Similar to the Janet Arnold _Patterns of Fashion_ series, this book presents scaled patterns for all sorts of garments from the 1920s. Patterns include dresses, blouses, skirts, underwear, lingerie, etc. Useful if you know understand pattern drafting for creating period garments, or if you're interested in garment patterning of the 1920s. I especially liked that it focuses on more everyday wear, rather than couture garments.
