I really loved the book The Lost Art of Dress by Linda Przybyszewski. Dr. P is an Associate Professor of History at Notre Dame University, and loves to sew as a hobby. She combined both of her interests in this enjoyable book.
The Lost Art of Dress traces the history of fashion from the Victorian age to 1980. Throughout the book, she quotes the experts in dress, the so-called “Dress Doctors” who taught generations of American women how to dress stylishly on a budget.
I loved both the historical aspects of this book and the fashion tips. As someone interest in historical fashion, modest dressing, and elegant, beautiful, stylish clothes – this book was perfect!
I published my interview with the author on my modest fashion blog, A Return to Elegance. You can find the text there.
