From the sidewalk to the catwalk, there’s no shortage of proof that Americans have lost the ability to dress well. It’s not that we dress poorly on purpose; instead, we lack the fashion know-how we need to dress professionally, appropriately, and flatteringly. As historian and expert dressmaker Linda Przybyszewski reveals in The Lost Art of Dress, it wasn’t always this way. In the first half of the twentieth century, a remarkable group of women?the so-called Dress Doctors?taught Americans how to dress artfully, and spearheaded a nationwide movement toward beautiful, economical, and egalitarian fashion. Armed with the Dress Doctors’ simple design principles, modern American women from all social and economic classes could learn to dress in a way that made them confident, engaged members of society.

A captivating and beautifully-illustrated look at the world of the Dress Doctors, The Lost Art of Dress introduces readers to their timeless rules about beauty and shows that, with a little help, we can learn them again.
