This is a story told as much as possible through first-hand descriptions in diaries and contemporary writings, including accounts of shops and shopping. The clothes people wore are related throughout to the history of textiles and manufacturing. Elizabeth Ewing has written many titles on the history of the costume, including "Women in Uniform" and "History of Children's Costume".
