[Liz, if this is not in the right place, please feel free to move it  Cheesy]

Hi everyone!
I'd be particularly interested in a glossary or dictionary of historical fashion terms - online, or printed! I can't find anything in my local library, and figured if something like this exists, someone here would know of it! I have a book called "the encyclopedia of world costume" which is sort of in the right direction, but too broad. I also have a "textile" dictionary, but this seems to be more of the "textile industry" - don't get me wrong, that's cool too, but not what I want at the moment.
If you want to make me really happy, find me a bilingual dictionary of historical fashion - German/English!
If anyone can point me in the right direction for my search, it's you guys...  Wink
Thanks!
Yours,
Sarah

How about this: Lewandowski, Elizabeth J. The Complete Costume Dictionary. Lanham, Md: Scarecrow Press, 2011. Print.

I haven't viewed it myself, but it is well represented in college/university libraries--and Scarecrow Press publishes a lot in the museum/archives/history field . . .

Thank you! I've now put it on hold through ILL  Grin and we'll see if it's what I had in mind.
