Greenberg: Godey's Lady's Book: Fashion, Dress Instructors, Work Godey's Lady's Book Included in every Lady's Book were several pages devoted to fashions, dress patterns for women and children, as well as many patterns and instructions for "work": crotchet, knit, needlework, etc. This is a list of all such images available at this site to date, linked to the images themselves. "Thumbnails" of these images that also link to the large images, are available through the Fashions & Patterns page.
