A little disappointed Jan. 28 2014
By Park - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Some interesting stories about the Titanic passengers, such as how a fashionably attired apprentice dressmaker was mistaken for a first class passenger upon rescue and provided a cabin on the Carpathia before being booted out when her steerage status was discovered! But I was too disappointed in the selection of illustrations to give more stars. I was surprised there weren't photos of actual passengers, besides Lucile, to display their attire and that 10 and 20 year old gowns were prominently featured.

Not a Pictorial Fashion Book Jan. 10 2014
By Barsinister - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you are looking for a book filled with photos or illustrations of the fashions of the Titanic era you will not find them in this book. There are a few photos of existing garments but not very many, the information is presented in text rather than visually.
Good Reference June 19 2014

If you costume, this is a good reference for the 1915 fashions. If you're looking for a Downton Abbey fashion, this would be a good reference. A bit short on detail, but a good starting point.
Needs more fashion sketches / pictures March 18 2014

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I thought the book was ok but I felt it had more text than it did fashion sketches and real life pictures.
