Reviews

"Not just a guide to sewing clothes such as cigarette pants, flared skirts, wrap dresses, pinup sweaters, and shift dresses, Hirsch's volume explores the fashion landscape of the period as well as the particular challenges of sewing vintage. The book comes with basic patterns and instructions for multiple variations."--Library Journal
"Complete with fun illustrations, great photography, and step-by-step directions, the author eases readers in with an illustrated fashion history primer and devotes five chapters to telling us everything we need to know to rock our attempt to sew a vintage wardrobe. With thick paper patterns included in a bulging pack inside the back of cover, this book delivers a massive amount of value well worth the cover price."--Grand Rapids Press
