|from 'Practical Dress Design'|
TJ, over at the Perfect Nose, has most gloriously and generously scanned and posted a number of pattern drafting books from the 40s and 50s.
(Copyrights have expired, so its all lovely and legal.) I can't even begin to describe how amazing these are -- however, when I starting going through them the first time, I had to run around the apartment and scream for a little bit before I was calm enough to download them.
|these are from the survey offer below|
...(I know, could there be more?) she is offering yet another fabulous book for anyone willing to give her their measurements
. She is putting together a bra pattern and is trying to get a sense of the range of people who might be interested in such a thing. (She would like you to know this is intended as a 'thank you' for people willing to take the time to help out with this.)
Thanks for the link back, lady. As an aside, the book is a thank you for precise measurements from people that are interested in bra-sewing, not an incentive for people that just want freebies. ;) Cheers.ReplyDelete
