The tudor tailor

The tudor tailor : techniques and patterns for making historically accurate period clothing , by Ninya Mikhaila and Jane Malcolm Davies , 160 pages , publish by Quite specific media

What I like

95% of the pictures are in color which is excellent.

There is no historical pictures but you will see reproduction for the garment make by the authors and the picture of it is in color.Could you ask better then that.A perfect example of what it will looks like.

Each garment present came with a pattern .

Pattern are for men and women.It also gave you a list of material and told you how much you will need.That's so great.

The book is not only an excellent ressource but also a delight for the eye.For each garment you have a list of what you need , a picture of the final result and a pattern.Could you ask for more.I think those authors really understand what a serious costumer is looking for.

What I didn't like

There is a 5% of black and white but I think it's acceptable and far better then most book.

There is nothing for child.

The major point : I wish this book is 500 pages not 160.It's so good .


This book is really A MUST TO HAVE .This book offer everything you should expect from it .Serious costumer will appreciate it there is no doubt .A must to have or to offer .No one can be disapointed by it.
