Stays and Corsets: Historical Patterns Translated for the Modern Bodygoes a step beyond traditional historical costuming texts by not only providing you with historical pattern diagrams and information, but by showing you how to adapt these patterns to the contemporary body shape. Using her original pattern-drafting system, author Mandy Barrington will show you how to draft a historical pattern for a modern body shape, while still retaining an accurate historical silhouette. Each pattern has been generated from an original stay, corset, or pattern taken from a historical garment. The instructions to follow these new patterns are designed to accommodate any size of female figure, allowing you to avoid extremely difficult, time consuming, and inaccurate historical pattern re-sizing Requiring only basic prior knowledge of pattern drafting, all calculations have been worked out for the costume maker and are provided in simple tables accompanied by easy-to-read, step-by-step diagrams that clearly show how the historical pattern is plotted onto the female basic block, coupled with photographs of the constructed stays and corsets.

The Modern Maker: Men's Doublets is the culmination of many years of research into historical tailoring. Traditionally, stage and screen costumers make these garments without the detailed stretching and sculpting that is the trademark of an old-world tailor. After examining surviving garments and analyzing tailor's pattern books from the era, The Modern Maker presents a simple, detailed method for making a doublet from around the year 1618. You will learn pattern making, hand sewing stitches, interior structuring, how to make a simple button from the time period as well as how to make a buttonhole by hand. In this book, you will learn the principles of efficient hand work. You will also see detailed photos of surviving garments displaying the techniques that are taught. Many of these images have never before been seen.
