i loved this book. the drawings and colors are beautiful, and the stories told made me smile. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in vintage clothes or lovely drawings.

Claims to be a description of a collection of dresses, but doesn't have a single photograph. Just some vague drawings. I wanted to be able to see the details of the dresses, to see why they were so special. There was none of that here. The text consisted of a brief story for each dress, and these were not memorable and became repetitive very quickly. I do not recommend this book at all.
