Haslam Dresscutting Book No. 14 (1937)

14 1

This is an E-book version of the Haslam System of Dresscutting Illustrated Book of Draftings - No. 14.

Year: Circa 1937

The e-book is 34 pages of patterns including ladies' evening gowns, coats, day dresses, suits, skirts, jackets, several blouses, sets of sleeves, lingerie, robes, and even children's clothes! The photos show you all of the pattern drafts included in this book. There are 31 different drafting ensembles in total.

To use these patterns, you will need the foundation dress pattern from the Haslam system and the dressmaking chart. The 1930s foundation pattern instructions are included with this edition but the chart tool is not included with this booklet and can be found here.

This is a wonderful book to have if you're a vintage fashion lover or costume designer. With one booklet, you could sew an entire wardrobe!

Also included - a free 25-page sewing guide compliments of Mrs. Depew Vintage to help you with pattern alteration, fabric choice, fitting, seams, finishing details, and tailoring etc. (Not included in the printed version).
