1895 Mode Pratique - historical fashion journal including sewing instructions and pattern layouts
This rare and extensive fashion journal is an ideal resource for fashion designers, historical costumiers, and re-enactors.
This volume measures 16 1/2” high x 12” wide x 1 1/2” deep It weighs more than 2kg
There are 432 pages plus literary supplement and index. Many pages include black and white illustrations of the latest fashions of the day and instructions for the construction of the patterns Illustrated in the magazine, as the photographs show.
The condition of the leather bound spine is good but the covering on the boards, a black fabric is shabby. The pages are fragile along the right hand edge. This is worse towards the front of the book. There are some folds, tears and marks on some of the pages. Some pages may be missing. I have not checked every single page.
This book does not include colour prints or cut patterns.
Overall I would consider this book to be fair - good.
