Last month I won a book on ebay called “Sewing for men and boys”. I had no idea what the book was about, besides sewing men clothes but the title sounded interesting enough to buy it.
I received the book today, it is a soft cover with 97 pages published in 1973 by Simplicity.
I was very pleased to see that a lot of tailoring sewing techniques I learned from a Dutch tailor are clearly described with a lot of pictures/ diagrams.
This is the first time I noticed that real tailoring techniques are available for the home sewer.
I have other tailoring books but this one is very well written and does have great accompanied pictures so you can see what to do.
Also pressing techniques and the specific pressing tools are described very well.
The sewing and tailoring information can also be used for sewing for woman like jackets and coats.
You can see the index
This book is OOP ( out of print) but worthwhile to search for if you want to learn more about tailoring techniques.
