As well as an engrossing commentary on the progress of lingerie from pantaloons and corsets of the 1890s, through tango knickers in the 1920s, to a Gossard long-line brassiere produced in the 1970s, Jill Salen provides accurate patterns for making each of the 30 period garments illustrated. The historical background and the patterns giving the classic shape of each period will prove an invaluable resource for fashion students and costume designers working on stage or screen.
