Originally published in the 1940s by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, this booklet is a guide to making your first dress at home by utilizing a home sewing pattern with a good sewing chart. The job will not be hard if you could take it step by step with care and attention to detail. Then, when you have learned the principles of putting together and finishing a simple dress, you can apply them in the making of any garment.
