Well, I was reading this one last night so it will do.

Patterns of Fashion 5: The content, cut, construction and context of bodies, stays, hoops and rumps c.1595-1795 by Janet Arnold, Jenny Tiramani, Luca Costigliolo, Sébastien Passot, Armelle Lucas and Johannes Pietsch



If you sew historical clothes, you know who Janet Arnold was. She analyses and made patterns for a large number of extant garments, and published several books on the subjects. The Patterns of Fashion series contains descriptions and patterns for clothes from the 16th century to the 1940s, with the two last volumes published after her death. Apparently, she left so much material there will be at least two more books coming.

This book was published just a couple of months ago and concerns 200 years of stays (corsets), and if you nerd this, it’s an amazing book. Arnold’s original research has been complemented with several colour photos of each garment, as well as contemporary paintings to indicate what the garment looked like when worn. I’ve made several pair of stays already, but now I want to make at least three of the ones in this book, asap.
