Authentic historical costume is essential for any performance, to instantly communicate a period, a social standing, an occupation or an identity.
The responsibility of this representation lies with the costume maker, in their knowledge of the design and their accuracy of construction.  

The Costume Maker's Companion serves as an aide memoire, to novice and experienced makers alike, covering the common garments of the Medieval, Tudor, Jacobean, Restoration, Regency and Victorian eras of British history. 
Learn the key styles and fashions of each period before step-by-step tutorials and detailed orders of work illustrate the costume construction process for eight popular garments, from the designer's drawing through to the finished piece.

This book also covers:
Working with a costume designer
Key processes and equipment
Flat pattern manipulations
Cutting a pattern on the stand
Taking a pattern from an existing garment
Costume details, including goldwork and flounces
Making accessories, including gauntlets, corsets and ruffs
