If you’re looking for a book that explains all from how to work with patterns, how to assemble, and how to construct shirts, dresses, pants for men and women. There is also a section about what seams were to use best, the use of darts, pleats, zippers, waistbands, sleeves, collars. You name it, any info is there. The points made in the book are backed by empirical research done by the author and others. Fantastic book, amazingly well researched and documented. This is a definite page-turner from beginning to end. The characters are so engaging, that you’re caught from the very beginning.
