Description
During my recent research trip to Germany, I had the chance to examine two 16th c German Master Tailor's books. I'll share more about what these books were used for, and exciting photos of the patterns shown in the books. What to know how a Waffenrock was really cut? What was the shape of women's skirts, were they really rectangular?
