"Whatever Shall I Wear; A Guide to Assembling a Woman's Basic 18th Century Wardrobe"
by Mara Riley
illustrated by Cathy (Kate) Johnson
"The reenacting hobby has long been in need of a clear, well-written introduction to 18th c. women's clothing. Whatever Shall I Wear? A Guide to Assembling a Woman's Basic 18th Century Wardrobe fills this gap nicely. It's readable, well-illustrated and based entirely on recent, reliable research. Beginners in 18th c. living history can trust Mara Riley and Kate Johnson to get them off to a good start, while old hands will find this book to be a good refresher course, with maybe a thing or two to teach them!" Sharon Ann Burnston, author, Fitting & Proper; 18th Century Clothing from the Collection of the Chester County Historical Society
