[Fwd: [TY] FW: Janet Arnold's bibliography]

this was posted on Meridies List, but should be of interest to us too...

-- BEGIN included message

This was posted today on the H-Costume list - for those of you who aren't on the list - 
there was recently a discussion on Arnold's patterns and her "credentials" as a historic 

Rebecca of Twywn

Because of some of the confusion over her writing, Janet Arnold asked me to
post her bibliography here for those of you interested in finding some of
the articles, etc. published in the past. Because it is so long, I'm
posting it in two parts.  This message includes books, published conference
papers and contributions to exhbition catalogs. The following message will
include articles in periodicals.

And in answer to some of the questions about her background and sewing
skills, she holds a certificate in arts and crafts, a national diploma of
design in dress, a certificate of education, and art teacher's diploma. She
worked for about ten  years cutting period costumes and working in the
wardrobes of several theater companies in England. She also has industrial
and couture experience in cutting and sewing. She is not a conservator, nor
is she a curator.
