[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?

The moderator of the [livejournal.com profile] dressdiaries community on LJ has set up a sister community on Dreamwidth: [community profile] dressdiaries. Nothing there yet, but hopefully it becomes as active and fun a community as the LJ community has been.

[community profile] dressdiaries is

a community for seamstresses and tailors, costume and fashion nuts and other sewing people to post dress diaries - accounts or journals of their triumphs and struggles on sewing projects. Historic costume, modern fashion and fantasy projects are all welcome!
