Book Title:   The Art of the Mantua-Maker: 1870 - 1879 Fashion, Sewing, and Clothes Care Advice
Genre:   nonfiction
Cover Blurb:   The art of the mantua-maker was practiced by every woman who wanted to create her own wardrobe. Fashion magazines were studied and dissected, scoured for details on how each effect was created, how many seams were used, and where the pleats were used. This book compiles sewing and fashion advice given in those books and magazines during the 1870s. I’ve included over 740 B/W period engravings.
