    Victorian seamstresses

    I'm doing some research on Victorian seamstresses and I was wondering if there any books on the subject which anyone would recommend?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_se...of_Two_Cities) But the seamstress only appears at the end of the story and has little relevance to the plot.

    Here you have some sugestions:

    Some more at the botton, specially, Alexander, Lynn. Women, Work and Representation. Athens: Ohio University Press, 2003.
