Modern reprint of 1905 book by Butterick Pattern Co (the first pattern maker) with an introduction. Has many photos and illustrations showing how stitches are done by hand. Excellent resource for re-enactors, theater costumers, and those who are studying the Victorian and Edwardian eras. ( )
This vintage how-to manual -- the first modern American sewing book -- provided turn-of-the-century seamstresses with clear instructions for altering patterns, hand-sewing stitches, and creating shirt-blouses, skirts, wedding and evening gowns, coats, maternity wear, undergarments, children's clothing and other apparel. Also details lost arts like boning a bodice, creating bust enhancers, more.
