The Changing Shape of Fashion


$12.00



       

From farthingales to empire waistlines to hoopskirts to bustles to hobble skirts to streamlined shifts, the fashion silhouette is ever changing. Waistlines wander. Sleeves explode. Bosoms rise and fall. This new paper doll book by antique fashion expert and talented artist, Brenda Sneathen Mattox, explores the shape shifting phenomenon. This fascinating focus on fashion history is illuminating as well as being a beautiful collectible.

Two dolls are ready to transform into the ever-changing, evolutionary fashions styles that range from 1600 to 1925, from Elizabethan ruffs to flapper's dropped waistlines.

Eight pages of exquisitely detailed and, authoritatively researched antique fashions show how women over the years have virtually transformed their body shape to be in the changing shape of fashion.
