This early work on dressmaking is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. It contains information on costume making, pattern design, skirts and much more. This is a fascinating work and is thoroughly recommended for anyone interested in the art of dressmaking. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
