All garments are based on original pieces held in the collections at two museums - Worthing Museum and Brighton Museum.
All projects include scaled patterns, line drawings, step-by-step photographs and instructions, photographs of the original garments and the finished reproductions.
Researching involved visiting the archives at each museums several times, identifying projects, making sketches, taking photographs, taking measurements, writing notes on fabrics, style features and manufacturing details.
The book also includes a history of everyday fashion and home dressmaking in the 1920s with further chapters on tools, fabrics and trimmings, and techniques and measurements.
Above, the collar of a dress is stretched out flat for measuring. A red laundry mark hand sewn at the centre back. Below is a sample of step-by-step photos showing how the reproduction collar was made.
