Number of pages: 372

Description:
A brief guide for the woman who would understand her own type, make the most of it, and know how simple a matter it is to be decorative if she will but master the few rules underlying all successful dressing. As the costuming of woman is an art, the history of that art must be known, to a certain extent, by one who would be an intelligent student of our subject. With the assistance of thirty-three illustrations to throw light upon the text, we have tried to tell the beguiling story of decorative woman, as she appears in frescoes of Ancient Egypt, on Greek vases, the Gothic woman in tapestry and stained glass, woman in painting of the Renaissance, seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth century woman in portraits.
