Terry cloth was once relegated to towels for the kitchen and bathroom, but, after World War II, it was embraced as a bold, colorful, and comfortable fabric for everything from beachwear to evening wear. The first book devoted specifically to terry cloth, it contains more than 500 images that trace the fabric's history through vintage advertisements, sewing patterns, and terry apparel. The patterns feature designs from dainty florals to fabulous geometrics, especially from the 1950s to the 1970s. Chapters include techniques for sewing, caring for, and where to purchase terry cloth. This book is a great resource for fashion designers, students of fashion, and history buffs.
