The attic is a place dedicate to share my passion :costuming and sewing.I'm not a professional or expert seamstress,only the mother of young kids who love sewing.You won't find 100% historical costume,museum replica, perfection or extreme thing here.

I believe everyone who bring some goodwill can sew and enjoy it.The attic is an unpretentious place .I show my work, information and hope it could somehow inspired you.Feel free to leave comment or share idea.Be welcome and visit as much as you want.

Eighteen century clothing at Williamsburg

Eighteen century clothing at Williamsburg by Linda Baumgarten , 79 pages , publish by The Colonial Williamsburg foundation

What I like

A really small book ,79pages, but only for 10$.It's rare to have a book on costume for a low price like that.It could be an unexpensive gift for yourself or for a friend.

50% of the pictures are in colors.

It's full of informations on 18th century which make it a good ressource.

The presented garment are not only women but for child and for men too.

What I didn't like

50% of black and white pictures.Why doing half the job?

No pattern are offer.

This little book is a candy for the eyes and I must say an unexpensive one.I will add this to the list of gift for a costumer friend.

N.B In case you ask , no  Gwenyver , this is not your christmas gift for this year.
