SEW SMARTLY

This is a blueprint for home dressmaking which also shows the novice seamstress how to face he figure -- and figure her face besides. Before any discussion of actual clothes there is advice on how to analyze your personality, physical assets and liabilities --and what corrections line, color and cut can make. Then there is information on fabric, design and textiles, on thread and findings, on tools and equipment, pressing, sewing machines and finally the preparation of the pattern -- measuring, cutting, marking, sewing and fitting. Not only a worthwhile how-to book for the beginner but one which will offer more than one assist to nimble -- and thimbled -- fingers.
