Very Vintage: The Guide to Vintage Patterns and Clothing is a lavish celebration of vintage clothes, simultaneously providing insight into one of fashion's current trends and a review of seventy years of fashion history.

Vintage has been a key reference point in fashion for many years. Contemporary outlets, such as Beyond Retro and Rokit, amongst others, have helped push vintage into the mainstream, and it is now more widely associated with contemporary style icons than musty charity shops. Very Vintage: The Guide to Vintage Patterns and Clothing tells you all you need to know about vintage clothing, providing a stunning visual overview of seven decades of fashion. The Perfect guide for fashionistas and anyone who loves clothes!

Spanning seventy years of fashion, each era has a comprehensive section that is beautifully illustrated with original fashion photographs and clothing patterns. Arranged thematically by period, the book tells you how to make your own 'vintage' style clothes, as well as offering hints on pieces that suit your body shape and tips on how to customise and alter vintage clothes - paying homage to their history whilst giving them a contemporary relevance. Very Vintage profiles iconic designers such as Laura Ashley, Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, Mary Quant, Biba, John Galliano, Christian Dior, Chanel and includes a glossary of websites and outlets for sourcing vintage clothes and materials.
