Practical Dress Design, by Mabel Deane Erwin, 1954 revised edition

This is a book I have been hunting for a physical copy of online all year, so I can get my grubby, vintage fashion loving hands it and use it to draft patterns to make some stunning vintage clothing. Unfortunately the only copies I have found available for sale tend to be prohibitively expensive. So I have been making due in the meantime by being forever thankful that blogger The Perfect Nose posted a free downloadable PDF back in 2012, which is still available to download all these years later on her blog!

If you have any interest in pattern drafting, sewing, or vintage clothing, please do visit the link above and check this book out, you won’t be sorry! Thank you so much to The Perfect Nose for scanning this wonderful book and making it available for all of us!
