This is a good book to begin learning pattern drafting. It focuses on female attire and was originally written in the 1950s. The designs reflect this. However, if you combine this basic knowledge with a book like Make it Your Own, by Lori Bottom and Rhonda Chaney, you will find that you can create endless original patterns -- as I have done from these books.

I have always loved the fit of clothing coming from Hong Kong and India. This book fits ( no pun intended) the bill. It is a little advanced for the beginner but if you are going to design your own clothes this is one of the books you need in your sewing library. The designs are older as stated by others but as a designer that shouldn't stop you from using this book to make a great fitting sloper and from there great fitting patterns.

I purchased this book because I want to make clothing that fits well, but I don't want to accumulate a stockpile of patterns that I will only use once. I am hoping this book will enable me to make the clothing that I envision myself in - comfortable, well-fitted, and designed for my personality and life style. I cannot say whether the book fully meets my expectations because I have not made anything yet.

I love this book. It shows in great detail how to use the Japanese method of taking measurments and then using them to draft patterns. Only thing, they didn't shoe how to draft princess seam patterns.
