Description: This classic 1901 guide to cutting ladies' tailor-made garments provided professional dressmakers and women intent on creating their own wearing apparel with a wealth of useful information. One of the reasons these seamstresses found it invaluable was the special attention paid to such shapes and body parts as "small waists", "large front hips", and the "corpulent form". This unabridged republication of that now-rare book includes all the patterns and detailed instructions for measuring and cutting more than 60 different garments and parts of wearing apparel, among them full leg-o-mutton sleeves, broad collars, a military cape, a double-breasted vest, riding breeches, knickerbockers, bloomers, a raglan box coat, an opera cloak, an Eton jacket, and many more. The perfect reference for anyone attempting to recreate accurate vintage clothing for costume parties and theatrical productions, this collection of turn-of-the-century dressmakers' patterns, enhanced with a new Introduction by fashion authority Kristina Harris, will also be of great interest to students and enthusiasts of costume history.
