By chance I came across a book at 18th Century fashion at work yesterday.  Since it was a hard back book with a jacket I was able to borrow it for two weeks (we turn in the jacket and sign for it and pay for it if we don't return it).  I haven't much time to look through it yet but it seems like it has lots of information and beautiful portrait details.  Not as many pictures and extant garments as I would have hoped, though.  It is Dress in Eighteenth-Century Europe 1715-1789 by Aileen Ribeiro.  Anyone know anything about it?  Is it a good source?

 The first toile I didn't take any pictures of.  It was sort of a wreck to look it, but it got me here. 


So I think I'm ready to move on to trying this in interlining.  One more chance to tweak before I cut my wool!
