This vintage book contains a complete textbook on dressmaking, originally designed for use in schools and colleges. With simple, step-by-step instructions and useful diagrams, this volume is ideal for the novice dressmaker and would make for a worthy addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: "Costume", "textiles", "Textile Manufacture", "Textile Economics", "Dressmaking", "General Suggestions and Instructions", "Drafting and Pattern-Making", "The Use of Commercial Patterns", "Pattern-Designing and Draping", "Skirts", and "Finishing and Embroidery". Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on dressmaking and tailoring.
