From Author-Illustrator Shubert, a designer for the entertainment industry, recommends this title for a variety of readers—costume designers, vintage-clothing collectors, genealogists, historians, and fashionistas. There are line drawings of clothing worn by Americans through the nineteenth century by decade to the present. The illustrations include everything from hoop skirts, shoes, wedding dresses, and maternity clothes to suits, hats, and bonnets. The accompanying text discusses social history and the evolution of dress. A good addition to costume collections in public, high-school, and academic libraries. --Christine Bulson

Review "You have done a masterful job of defining your subject and your expertise in this field is unique... Your book promises to be a wonderful help to genealogist researchers everywhere. With great admiration for you."

"Teachers of Theatre will find this book to be a useful tool. This text helps technical theatre students create correctly styled costumes and helps performers create characters influenced by time appropriate attire."
--  Bart McHenry, Dean of Fine Arts and Media Technology, Saddleback College, Mission Viejo, California

"Drawing upon her years of costume design experience and love of social history, Betty gives the lay person or the professional designer an invaluable research tool. She does this simply and without the complexity one must wade through in other history of costume books. Her creativity and sense of humour jumps from every page. This is one of the most valued 'go to' books in my library with talking points new, even to me."
--  Alyja Kalinich Disneyland Costume Designer

"Having struggled many times to figure out when a photo was taken, I know how much this book is needed.  Betty's expertise will be helpful to all of us who depend on historical accuracy."
