Distaff Sketch Book: How American Women Dressed, 1774-1783

LISTED ON SATURDAY, MARCH 31, 2018 - VIEWED 34 TIMES
The Distaff Sketch Book is a collection of notes and sketches of women's dress in America from 1774 to 1783. Written by Robert L. Klinger and published in 1974 by the Pioneer Press, Union City TN, the 61-page softcover book is a goldmine for anyone seeking information on how women dressed in the early years of our country.

The book appears to be a facsimile of a hand-written, illustrated text on the subject, including sketches of fashions and patterns along with text comments on fabrics, accessories, and children's clothes. The information is based on the author's study of actual specimens of women's clothing and accessories worn in the era, while the details for each sketch are based on his study of contemporary writings, drawings and paintings.

The 8.5- by 11-inch book features wonderful color drawings on the front and back covers and numerous black/white drawings inside. There is a small scuff at bottom of back cover, but otherwise we see no apparent defects � inside or out! It�s a fascinating study! (16126)
