This be arrrr second best selling book in me shop! That's because it's one of the very few books that contains the history, detailed pictures and patterns of actual historical clothes. It is of the era just past the golden age, but it still good.

Back of book description: "Costume Close-Up [...] unveils the secrets of eighteenth-century garments in the collection of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. Experts and novices alike will enjoy the engaging presentation of text, period illustrations, and modern photography.

Examining stitch marks, thread remnants, and creases, the authors solve the mysteries of how clothing was made, altered, and sometimes even how it was laundered and stored. In the course of their investigation, they illuminate aspects of the manufacture and wearing of eighteenth-century clothing, from how wool was glazed... to who wore under drawers."
