Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not as Helpful as I had Hoped  Nov 2, 2008
The line drawings are a litle confusing to me - it is not always clear what part of an article of clothing is attached (not sewn, usually glued) to what part. The models looked more than a little freaky to me until I realized they were all the same manequin, same pose, in different costumes. There's not enough detailed information for me to make these creations easily (I sew, although I'm not against using glue, staples, masking tape, whatever, in a pinch). If you have a thrift store with lots of cool cast off within a reasonable driving distance, many of the ideas in this book would be exciting to try. If someone had a good imagination, I might share this book with them to prove to them that they can think up ways to create interesting costumes. But I wouldn't buy this book and give it to them - I suspect there are more useful ones out there. Clearly, though, this book is a labor of love and the photos of costumes created are intriguing.
 
Jack of all trades  Oct 20, 2005
I bought this book awhile ago, and I found that it came in really handy for my high school drama class. This book has great suggestions about how to create costumes when you're on a very limited budget; the hardest part of making any of these costumes is to avoid burning your fingers with the glue gun! I would especially reccommend it to anyone who is a high school drama teacher (like me) who has a program with no money and big expectations. :)
 
Great theatrical costume ideas found here  Jul 19, 2005
The book provides numerous creative ideas for low budget theater companies. I found the ideas in this book clever and very useful, covering many different periods of style. Book has before and after photographs, easy to understand instructions. Good to have as a reference.
 
Some great ideas  Apr 7, 2005
I agree with some of the other reviewers who pointed out that the costumes in this book are not "period perfect", but I thought the author had some clever and inspiring ideas about how to mix cast-off items to create new looks. Looking at her pictures will really help you to see the potential in those ugly old bridesmaids' dresses. I also appreciated her tips on how to use things like glue guns and cardboard for quick construction. I do wish, however, that the interior of the book had color pictures--the copy I have is all black and white, and it's hard to make out the detail in many of the images.
 
Instant Period Costumes  May 17, 2002
This is a fabulous book!!! Great for sewers and non-sewers alike. I will definitely buy it for my collection and have already started to aquire cast off clothing for usagein new costumes. Barb Rogers makes each costume seem so easy to make and really takes the threat out of costuming. GREAT IDEAS!!!! good pictures, wish they were all in color!!...
