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. The book includes dresses, suits, separates, underwear, nightwear, and swimwear.
