For advanced sewers only, but a treasure trove for them. Reprints a very large number of original drafting patterns.

I bought this at Fort Laramie and can't wait to test out the patterns. They had alot of books with old styles in them, but this was the best one I found that had good patterns and could actually be used to create them.
