This is an E-book copy of the 1901 London edition of the incredibly scarce Direct System of Ladies' Cutting by master tailor T.H. Holding.  Please see the bottom of this page for more photos of the content.

In this reproduction of the Direct System of Ladies' Cutting (4th edition) I have endeavored to include helpful fashion plates and their descriptions for your reference.

These have been taken from a handful of rare 1900 editions of The Designer magazine.

The Designer was originally published monthly by the Standard Fashion Company in New York and by the Standard Pattern Company Ltd. in London. 

The magazines advertised sewing patterns available to order by post and included highly-detailed descriptions of their construction and fabric choices, which are an invaluable resource to today’s historically-minded seamstress and tailor.
