This classic 1901 guide to cutting ladies' tailor-made clothing provided professional dressmakers with a wealth of useful information.

One of the reasons seamstresses found it valuable was the special attention paid to "small waists," "large front hips," and the "corpulent form."

Included in this unabridged republication of that now-rare book are patterns and detailed instructions for measuring and cutting over 60 vintage garments and parts of wearing apparel, among them full leg-o-mutton sleeves, a bell or wing sleeve, broad collars, a military cape, a double-breasted vest, a skirt with a flounce, a raglan box coat, knickerbockers, bloomers, an opera cloak, riding breeches, an Eton jacket, and much more. 

Further enhanced with a new introduction by fashion authority Kristina Harris, this volume will prove indispensable to anyone attempting to re-create vintage clothing for costume parties and theatrical productions.

This book will also be of great interest to students and enthusiasts of costume history.
