In a nutshell, 1940s women’s fashion was about creating an hourglass silhouette with masculine details: padded shoulders nipped in high waist tops, and A-line skirts that came down to the knee. This was the everyday shape for clothing, from suits to dresses. Even pants had a similar high waisted, wide leg shape. If a woman was not naturally an hourglass shape, the clothes were designed to help her achieve the look

I, a male, small-time hobbyist-painter, bought this as a guide to early 20th century, upscale women's wear. It works well for its intended purpose. But in addition <Vintage Fashions> is chock full of excellent color photos, 2 or 3 to a page. They show a half-dozen or so youngish, drop-dead-gorgeous, live models wearing beautiful, expensive outfits from that period. (They probably have good minds too).

The photos are older but they really gives one a real look into how real people appeared in actual vintage clothing.

Good resource material for costume design.

Very nice item, even better than pictured.

I use these books to get ideas and to make patterns, so the ones that have a lot of different designs and show them well are very prized. You think f the 20's (mostly) as the straight flapper dress, but there were others in all kinds of shapes.
You can sure tell where the Star Wars contumes came from!

I enjoyed the text of this book. The pictures are limited to primarily donated costumes owned by an Oregon Community Theater. The collection is almost exclusively evening wear and suits. No every day clothes and very few accessories. Clothing is shown on actual people.

The author does share a few construction details that will help in distinguishing between the decades. This would be a good introduction but not a lot of detail. You will need other books to get a fuller view of the eras. I still recommend the 2 Ellie Laubner books as the best of their kind.
Clear, concise protrayl of beautiful and not-so-beautiful fashions of the 20s-40s. The pricing guide is helpful when buying or selling vintage clothing.
