The New Dressmaker

The New Dressmaker
It's 1921. Before the great depression. After WWI. King George V is on the throne. The Butterick Publishing Company has just released the new, revised and enlarged third edition of a comprehensive guide to dressmaking and tailoring for the home seamstress.  Over 160 pages describe in detail how to achieve a custom garment. The preface provides some insight into life in the early twenties, when sewing was a way to save money.

Because The New Dressmaker is long out of print, and the copyright has expired, it has been scanned and is available legally for viewing at on the Internet Archive website. You can download a a PDF, read it online, read it on your Kindle and other formats.

What a wonderful find.
