And then a friend sent me a link to another book which she says is excellent. The Costumer’s Handbook: How to Make All Kinds of Costumes by Rosemary Ingham & Elizabeth Covey.
Admittedly, the one by McCann looks more like what I’m looking for, but it’s hard to tell just from Amazon.com.
Having said that, if you want to send me this one, I wouldn’t complain. 🙂 It also looks really good.
