The DAR Museum's curators and staff have focused on nearly sixty items from the Museum's treasures reflective of our American ancestors' sense of fashion, practicality and needlework artistry. The educational legacy held within this books pages hearkens back to a time when clothing was the means through which childhood innocence was preserved, days of mourning were honored and new birth or days of lifelong marital commitment were celebrated. Full color pictures and extensive descriptions of garments ranging from the early 18th century thru the 19th century make this a must have resource for anyone interested in historic costume. Small line drawings of many of the embroidery patterns included in back. Hardcover
