The original title of the book: Seventeenth Century Women's Dress: 2 (Dress Pattern 2)

Book Two in the V&A's groundbreaking new series presents 17 patterns for garments and accessories from a seventeenth-century woman's wardrobe. It includes patterns for a loose gown, a jacket, a pair of stays and a boned bodice, ivory and wooden busks, shoes, a hat, a stomacher, linen bands and supporters, a bag and a knife case. It also features a description of the stay-making process. Full step-by-step drawings of the construction sequence are given for each garment to enable the reader to accurately reconstruct them. There are scale patterns and diagrams for making linen and metal thread laces and embroidery designs. Multiple photographs of the objects, close-up construction details and X-ray photography reveal the hidden elements of the clothes, the precise number of layers and the stitches used inside.

Susan North is a curator in the V&A Fashion, Textiles and Furniture Department. Jenny Tiramani devised and produced patterns for the book with Melanie Braun, Luca Costigliolo, Armelle Lucas, and Claire Thornton. They are all founding members of the School of Historical Dress and worked together in the wardrobe department of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre between 1999 and 2005.

    A must for any historical costumer!Both this and volume 1 were arriving on the market just as I was finishing my degree, and I really do wish they had been available when I was studying!Much like Patterns of Fashion by Janet Arnold, both of these books contain patterns on grids to be scaled up by the user; however, what makes these books so fantastic is that they go into great detail in how each item can be replicated with step-by-step instructions which are as close to historically accurate as the writers could make them.I was actually made aware of these books when I worked very briefly on a project at the Bowes Museum alongside costumier and contributor Luca Costigliolo. Having first hand experience of Luca's work and knowledge, I cannot recommend these books enough for anyone who wants to develop their knowledge of historical clothing and techniques.

    Luscious pictures, great x-rays, fabulous back-stories. And I even managed to reproduce one of the bodices. What a beautiful book!

    Every bit as good as Book One. I can't fault these books, everything I could wish for in a book on historic dress. It is a thing of beauty, just as good to look at - the detailed photographs of beautiful garments - as to follow the detailed instructions on how the garments were constructed. I have a growing collection of costume books but this series is by far my favourite. I only wish there were more garments/objects covered. I hope the series continues....

    Absolutely brilliant - the pictures, and details of these garments are amazing. The x-rays photos really illuminate the construction of these clothes. Beautiful book, with so much to study and learn and admire.

    I was thrilled to open this beautiful book for the first time. I had heard that the author, Jenny Tiramani, is an expert in her field and I wanted to learn from her. The lay out is excellent and the explanations are well thought out.I am inspired to create my own garments with a seventeenth century twist.I recommend this book to anyone with an interest in clothes as well as historical costume.

    I received this just before my trip to Blythe House, where I was able to see for myself some of the items described. As a performer and lecturer in Historical Dance, I make a lot of period costumes so books like this are a godsend. It arrived promptly and in good condition.

    This book is excellent in terms of detailed text and photographs. It is beautifully presented and has been of great interest to our 17th century costume making group.
