The Edwardian Modiste: 85 Authentic Patterns With Instructions, Fashion Plates, and Period Sewing Techniques
The 85 patterns and 91 fashion plates on this book were reproduced from rare originals of the 1905 American Garment Cutter Instruction and Diagram Book and 1907 1909 problems with the quarterly American Modiste. These publications were utilized by both professional dressmakers and amateurs. They offered sophisticated fashions, artistic illustrations, fashion columns describing the recent styles, and pattern instructions. Additionally they provided the power to create patterns for the wearer’s individual measurements with the American System of Cutting. The use of special rulers that eliminated arithmetic, even untrained designers may enlarge pattern diagrams to the proper size. A full set of printed rulers and detailed instructions are provided for readers who want to use the American System. Also included are instructions for enlarging the patterns by projection, plus carefully selected sections from a 1907 sewing manual, The Complete Dressmaker.
