About this item

Forties and Fifties Fashion for the Stage: with Patterns from Vintage Clothing provides instruction on how to recreate fashion from the 1940s and 1950s that withstands the vigorous demands of theatrical stage use. This book provides historical context for the clothing and features authentic patterns taken from real vintage pieces. Forties and Fifties Fashion for the Stage demonstrates how to construct a durable costume from scratch, and how to adjust patterns to fit an individual’s measurements. The book also contains a number of "How To Fake It" chapters with advice on thrifting and how to create period fashion using today’s clothing. Both men’s and women’s fashions and patterns are featured, including formal and casual wear.
