This is an excellent book for dressmaking showing clear, concise directions with good illustrations and photographs. There is an excellent chapter on fitting problems, and how to correct these on the flat pattern. I found the flat pattern information easier to understand in this book than some of the modern flat patternmaking textbooks.
