Giveaway: Fashion A-Z

26 Jun


A couple weeks ago, the folks at Laurence King sent me this cute little book, Fashion A-Z: An Illustrated Dictionary, to check out.


When I say cute little book, I’m not exaggerating – it’s a mini book, not much taller than the length of my hand (and I have small hands!). The cutest dictionary I’ve ever seen, at any rate!

Fasion A-Z Blad Spreads-7

While one can easily find this information on Google in this day and age, there’s something so satisfying about flipping through a book to find your answer. And this lil guy is PACKED full of answers – in addition to definitions for stuff like Dolman Sleeves and Gussets, there are definitions for historical clothing (Medici collar, anyone?), some knitting terms (ever wonder what people are talking about when they discuss Stockinette?) and fabric definitions. “Man Bag” is included, for god’s sake!

And the illustrations are so sweet! You can click on the images in this post to make them bigger.

The fabric definitions are the most fun to look up! Do you ever lurk the fabric suggestions on vintage patterns and wonder wtf they are talking about – Sharkskin? Marocain? Dimity? Ottoman? WHAT IS THIS WITCHERY? It’s *all* in here, y’all! Pretty impressive!

Next time a vintage pattern throws a weird, outdated term at me, I’ll be armed and ready!

Want a copy for your very own? Leave a comment on this post – and yes, this giveaway is open WORLDWIDE! I’ll close the giveaway Monday, 7/1 and draw a random winner then.


Theodore wishes you the best of luck! :3

  5. Elena June 26, 2013 at 1:25 pm #

    The preview makes me want to see more of this book! I really like the illustrations and there’s always more room in my sewing room for a good reference book.

  6. Shae Cannon June 26, 2013 at 1:25 pm #

    Would love the book!

  7. Meghan June 26, 2013 at 1:25 pm #

    This looks so cool! I, too, love to have things written in a book rather than searching the interwebz. I’m TOYING with the idea of making clothes for myself, so this would be really handy when I start that little adventure.

  48. sewingforboobies June 26, 2013 at 3:01 pm #

    Oh my gosh, I could totally use this, I’m a sewing jargon dunce. Hope I get lucky, thanks for the opportunity! I also want Theodore, but a) husband has imposed ban on increasing feline occupancy of our house beyond 2 current residents, and b) he may not enjoy the journey to London with only a book for company…
