Originally published in the 1910s, Dressmaking Made Easy sets forth the quickest and best method for every operation in sewing. It's a handy book of reference in which the making of any part of a garment can be easily looked up.
The book was based on the author's years of experience in manufacturing patterns and making garments. "The making of a whole garment may seem a difficult proposition, but when thought of in individual parts, it resolves itself into simple operations. It is merely a series of joining seams, turning edges for hems, and sewing pieces together for pockets and other trimmings. Any woman who can run a sewing machine can join the pieces, if she knows how to place the goods and where to stitch," said the author.
