PostSubject: Costumes with Character by Amy Puetz   Fri Aug 31, 2012 10:09 am

I was checking out a favorite blog of mine today and found out about this neat book titled, Costumes with Character by Amy Puetz. Here's the description:

"Are you ready to make history come alive? This easy sewing book has patterns and step-by-step instructions for making accessories for eleven different time periods. Brave the wilderness in an authentic looking pioneer bonnet, attend a tea party in a Victorian collar, and help America win the Revolution dressed in a vest. These are just a few of the time periods covered in this innovative book.

Costumes with Character highlights eleven different eras in American history.

The chapters are:

Colonial (Pilgrim & Puritan 1620-1700)
Quaker (1681-1860)
American Revolution (1775-1783)
Young Republic (1800-1820)
Romantic Era (1820-1848)
Pioneer (1800s)
Civil War (1861-1865)
Sailor (1865-1905)
Victorian 1880s
Victorian 1890s
Turn of the Century (1900-1910)
Tea Party

Each chapter has color instructions to make cuffs, aprons, bonnets, hats, collars, vests, etc. There are also lots of extra goodies like quotes, quizzes, and beautiful pictures. You will learn more about the history of the eras from reliable old sources.

A fun book for girls and ladies of all ages. The patterns are designed for young adults but a handy adjustment formula is included to help you use the patterns for younger girls."
