Review: The Fashion Designer by:Nancy Moser

 The Fashion Designer
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge in exchange for my honest review from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

About the Book:
The American Dream thrives in 1912 New York City

Annie Wood, the housemaid-turned-pattern designer in The Pattern Artist, jumps at the chance to design her own clothing line when a wealthy New York couple offer to finance her endeavor. Joining the project is Annie’s new husband, Sean Culver, her best friend at Butterick, Maude Nascato, and a mother figure, Edna Holmquist.

Annie and her colleagues give up their careers, risking everything to follow a shared passion: clothes that are both fashionable and functional for modern, busy women in 1912.

Personal and financial setbacks threaten to keep the business from ever selling a single dress and test old relationships and new romances. No one said it would be easy. But the promise of the American Dream holds a deep hope for those who work hard, trust God, and never give up.


My Review:
 A great book to read in a time period such as the early 1900's where you typically read more about cowboys and saloons. It was refreshing to read about business minded people that were trying to make it doing a good thing at that time. Annie along with her friends join this endeavor in a way to make a profit for themselves during a time where it was hard to do anything or get anywhere.

 This group of people face the odds and know that there will setbacks but soldier on they must. They have risked everything to make it big in the fashion business and it was fun watching everything unfold on the chance it all could actually work out for them.

 A great book that takes place in the big apple. I loved reading it and cant wait to see whats next.
