This seems very useful!
I have this book at home. It is such a big help to understanding fit of clothes. One of the best books I have found yet!
This is awesome! I've been needing something like this for a long time. What book is it from?
So cool ideas here! Thank you very much for sharing :)http://alicecloset-sewing.blogspot.com/
A must for every good seamstress!Great!
I have a book that does this for skirts (and everything else)! It was the best garage sale find ever. "Sewing Made Easy" (new revised edition)by Mary Lynch and Dorothy Sara. The original printing says 1950, but they did four editions throughout that decade. My copy is the 1960 edition - an entire decade of sewing wisdom and fashion documented in one place. It has always been one of my favorite treasures.
I was looking at this earlier today, Definitely gives you that AHA! moment.
@TasaraThis particular page is from Clothing for Moderns by Mabel D. Erwin and Lila A. Kinchen. I have the Third Edition and I think it's actually a textbook. If you find it scoop it up! It has wonderful appendices for sewing notions and patterns. I also have the Sewing Made Easy book. That's a wonderful book as well!
I just ordered both those books for a steal on Amazon, thanks for the tip!
Oh wow - this is really amazing! Thanks for sharing!
@LaniThanks Lani, you're the best.
Love this. thanks for posting it. I agree...wish there was one for skirts :)
Wow, girl! You can SEW! I was just looking over your tutorials and I'm blown AWAY at your talent! How have I never heard of you before now!?
We used something very similar in costuming when I was a theatre major in college. We had basically 4-5 bodice patterns, 4-5 sleeve patterns, 4-5 skirt patterns, and mixed-and-matched to get the style/time period we needed.
