What shall I wear? The what, where, when, and how much of fashionWhat shall I wear? The what, where, when, and how much of fashion by Claire McCardell

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Review of the first edition.

In her day, Claire McCardell was revolutionary. Her idea that fashion should suit the woman was a very new and freeing idea. It’s still a freeing idea, but the first edition is not timeless in the specifics.

I’d say this would be a good book for a collector, but the quality of the paper concerns me. It’s not on acid free paper, and the paper was brittle and becoming very fragile. I don’t know that it will last.

However, if you love Ms. McCardell’s ideas and her fashions, this is a very fun read. It’s definitely worth checking out from the library.
