I can suggest a series of books, The Mary Frances Series. They are how to books which are wrapped around a topic, knitting & crochet, sewing, cooking, gardening & housekeeping. I don’t think you could get through them all (or even one!) in a month if you try to do all of the projects but they certainly give you a feel for life then. There are projects with full instructions & the stories centre around a little girl. These books were written in the early 20th century. ~Elizabeth
Dover Publications carries books, CD ROMs and high-end coloring books of any fashion/era you can think of. ~Annette
Here’s a book I recommend you read together. It offers a wonderful perspective on fashion and beauty that is much more constructive and helps with putting mainstream fashion expectations into proper perspective.
I just found the free beauty profiling. It’s all in the book, but it’s cool to watch the little videos on the site. I love the way this system emphasizes the unique qualities of each type of woman rather than endorse mainstream ideas of what beauty is.
I think Personal Beauty Profiling is a good foundation for interest in fashion. I have found this system to be very enlightening and helpful in social interactions and personal relationships as well. I have even give the book as a present to new mothers (especially ones with daughters.) ~Christeil
