This is a digital copy of the Fall & Winter 1923 publication "Fashion Service" published quarterly by the Woman's Institute.
This is an incredibly hard to find book that features stunning fashions from the early 1920's period, and several articles on how to sew the dresses featured. There are no actual sewing patterns included but there are several descriptive tutorials and diagrams that one could copy with great results. An experienced seamstress would be able to take the instruction given and tailor the dresses pictured.
The book is 49 pages of articles, lovely drawings, instruction and embellishment lessons for sewing beautiful clothing.
