This is a fabulous book. It includes patterns. It chronicles Ms. Vionnet's career.

One of the most sumptuously designed books I've ever seen, with lavish, abundant photographs of Madeleine Vionnet's groundbreaking dress designs of the 1920s and 1930s. It also includes reproductions of many patterns for her dresses, and a short but informative biography.

Ms. Vionnet's book is a true work of art for the fashionista who knows REAL beauty in the draftmenship of dress making. The paterns are easy to follow that you'd think that they're not going to work well. But over all the styles and beauty of her work are so timeless and would work well then AND now! And I'm not a fashion junkie, I just like timeless pieces...

I have a huge collection of apparel design books, but this book is my favorite. It demystifies complicated bias cut designs, which is priceless. Also, it contains blueprints of actual Vionnet designs that you can use if you have a bit of experience in patternwork. They are amazing; I felt like I found Vionnet's original designs while poking around in an attic in Paris: euphoric!
