[livejournal.com profile] strawberrykaren posted in the LJ [livejournal.com profile] sca_garb about some upcoming books on clothing and textiles.

Personally, I'm most excited about Clothes of the Common People 1580-1660.

You can see some preview pages from Medieval Garments Reconstructed: Norse Clothing Patterns at Oxbow Books.

Another book (planned for April 2011) that I am looking forward to a lot is Seventeenth-Century Women's Dress Patterns: Book 1, which includes a detailed analysis of the Laton jacket (the late 16th/early 17th century embroidered jacket reproduced by the Plimoth Plantation). It is supposed to be a new series, so I'm crossing my fingers for some future 16th century clothing books from the V&A.

ETA: Some more books for those with deep pockets or interlibrary loan.
Any other upcoming clothing/textile/embroidery books you guys are looking forward to?
