One of the questions we get asked the most is regarding what our favorite costuming books are. While it isn't always easy to pick favorites (usually it's easier to pick the ones we don't like - ha!) Lauren and Abby try to narrow their lists down to their top 5 picks. While there is some overlap, they do diverge on a couple of selections. Our Favorite Books Are: 1. Norah Waugh - Cut of Women's Clothes 2. Kyoto's Costume book(s) 3. Nancy Bradfield's Costume in Detail 4. FLORENCE (not Beverly...lol) Montgomery's Textiles in America 5. Janet Arnold's Patterns of Fashion (Lauren cheated.) 6. Norah Waugh's Corsets and Crinolines 7. Jean Hunnisett's Period Costume for Stage and Screen Series (again, Lauren cheated -- haha) If you want links to all of these books, head on over to our blog - http://blog.americanduchess.com - where we have links to everything. You can also buy our book (which Abby shamelessly plugs at http;//www.americanduchess.com) We hope you enjoyed this "shorter" episode (and the new sound and editing equipment!) Until next time! -- Abby & Lauren
