When you -- or, at least, when I -- read the title "Blueprints of Fashion: Home Sewing Patterns of the 1940s", I expect a book filled with patterns from the 1940s. There is not a single actual pattern: what there is is pictures of the sketches from the front covers of sewing patterns of the 1940s. Which was interesting enough for a few pages, but I was expecting to sew some nice dresses, and all I got was fashion sketches... and to top it off, there aren't even a dozen pages of text.
