This is a book published by the Butterick pattern company to support sales of dress patterns of the day, C.1930. Fun information on 1930's fashion styles, as everything in this book (fitting, finishing, machine sewing, special techniques, and "modernizing" your wardrobe) is based on the 1930's fashion silouette. Very simple illustrations and straightforward text. Not a lot of "frills" in this book.
