Classic, Dense, Informative, Difficult

This is a very complete text (over 500 pages) of pattern drafting through the years. The book is mostly drafting examples with instructions and drawings. If studied carefully, one can learn a huge amount about pattern drafting. This is not an easy read, but is recommended for anyone serious about costumes and/or pattern drafting.
There seem to be a number of errors in the instructions but overall this is a very instructive book of major significance.
