I am a docent for Virginia City, NV, USA and dress in early 1900's fashion. Being a seamstress, this book enabled me to design my costumes. Even though there is no color, you are still able to get details. These are actual pattern covers from the early 1900's. The photos give me enough detail so I can re-produce the outfit for myself.
It's a little misleading to have the fashions be from 1909 (only) and have the title be "Early 1900's." I do my research to the year, not the decade. But it has a good variety of fashions (day, evening, etc.) which is always helpful.
Was for my grand daughters and they loved it. Will order another.
