I've drafted a pattern following the jacket instructions and there are definitely some missing steps (I is never covered) and errors in the text (a 1/6 versus 1/3 mix up and I suspect that in at least one spot the wrong measurement was used as a base for the line length). This is a very useful book for producing period reproductions, but not for the novice pattern drafter. The sleeve instructions were fine, though, and I'm looking forward to making the jacket with very full sleeves from the shoulder to the elbow. Collars and cuffs are separate, as well, and you have to remember to add seam allowances around each piece. I'll try to update this once I've actually put the garment together. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0486451054, Paperback)

As the 20th century dawned, women began to abandon frilly fashions for sharply tailored suits. Professional tailors of the time turned to this comprehensive resource to create office outfits, riding pants, blouses, and other garments. Filled with more than 80 patterns, it's an invaluable reference for costume designers and fashion historians. 92 black-and-white illustrations.
