Colfax Avenue: Historian and expert dressmaker Linda Przybyszewski will discuss and sign her new book The Lost Art of Dress: The Women Who Once Made America Stylish ($28.99 Basic Books). In the first half of the twentieth century, a remarkable group of women—the so-called Dress Doctors—taught American women how to stretch each yard of fabric and dress well on a budget. In her captivating and beautifully-illustrated look at the world of the Dress Doctors, Przybyszewski introduces a new audience to their timeless rules of fashion and beauty.
