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.

This is a good basic sewing instruction book. Mine was printed in the sixties, so it is full of great illustrations and fashions of the time. It encourages using as few pins as possible when pinning and no basting.
