    1890s Sewing Patterns for Women and Children

    I collect original issues of the magazine these patterns were drawn from--_The Voice of Fashion_--and other magazines using patent drafting systems. (Though the use of the system and therefore pattern enlargement is not made clear for the modern reader in this book.) Although _The Voice of Fashion_ is a relatively common pattern magazine on the antique market, I do not own most of the issues these patterns were drawn from and am therefore pleased to see them reprinted.

    Terrific Addition to Your Bookshelf

    If you sew reproductions or costumes of any kind, you MUST have this book. The clothes are scrumptious.
