Reader's note

Interested in vintage fashion? Look no further! This tome shows fashion's progression and is illustrated throughout the text! As well as the author's own opinions and conclusions, it also contains quotes from fashion writers in history. One writer in 1907 remarks - Dress has become more luxurious than ever. Investments have sagged all along the line; taxes have increased and multiplied, but there is still plenty of money in some quarters, and the cost and elaboration of attire today is one of the ways in which this interesting fact reveals itself. It is the lavish use of embroideries that accounts for the enhanced expenditure on dress. The rich and beautiful brocades, the fine velvets and lustrous satins which made the highest ideal of a costly court train of ten or fifteen years ago, did not cost nearly as much as the elaborate hand embroideries of the moment's ambition. - I wonder what this writer would think of the cost of today's fashions?
