- Not available
A detailed discussion of cut and construction is accompanied by pattern layouts and numerous photographs which clearly illustrate the different styles of dress through the centuries.
Women's costume of the Near and Middle East is a hitherto sadly neglected subject. After years of original research across the world, this gap has been admirably filled by Jennifer Scarce's scholarly readable study.

'This is a really pleasant book to read ... [it] fills an obvious gap and with its notes and bibliography, it is a lovely introduction to the subject.' - Bulletin of the Association for the Study of Travel in Egypt and the Near East: Note and Queries
'A very well-informed and readable portrayal. With its 128 photographs Women's Costume is extremely well illustrated without becoming a "costume piece" itself.' - Rezensionen
