Free pattern drafting book

Nothing beats an old pattern drafting book....especially when it's FREEEEE. Thats right guys, no money. Zilch. None. As free as the wind. This book contains general sewing info and garment finishing tips, PLUS both women and mens pattern drafting. Yep pretty cool huh!? 

It originally came with what I presume are very basic patterns such as slopers that one would change using the diagrams provided. If you have slopers and at least advanced beginner skills you'll be able to whip up some pretty cool vintage repro garments. 

I found this while trawling the internet and I thought I would share it with you all. Sharing after all, is caring. 

You can access it here for download
You can look at the digital record here

  1. Coolness! I love free stuffs! Ha ha.... these dresses look way hard! I can't wait to see what you do with them!

  2. I don't know what a sloper is, I'm a very beginner sewer, but I might have a look at this later! Thanks for the link x
