Originally published in the 1950s by the College of Agriculture, University of California, this manual shows how to use the unit method of sewing to make a garment in easy-to-follow steps. Each part of a garment is completed before the parts are put together. With this organized method, making an attractive garment of good workmanship is possible for either a beginner or an experienced sewer.

The directions given in this manual can be adapted to the making of any garment, whether for a man, woman, or child. Tips on using fabrics other than cotton will be of help when you are ready to extend your sewing experience.
