"Commonsense Dresscutting and Drafting for Adults", by M M Staeheli, Second Edition, printed in Australia, copyright 1954.

The book is a hard-cover, 214 page sewing manual for the home dressmaker. Gorgeous hand - drawn diagrams of women's clothes are scattered throughout. The patterns need to be drafted separately on paper, following the directions in the book. This allows for tailor-made garments, with endless size and style variations.The book is filled with simple diagrams and illustrations, which demonstrate the techniques well.

Subjects covered : (See image #2 for index; zoom the image).

The book is roughly 8 1/2 X 10 1/2 inches, a hard cover. The binding of the book is worn. The board cover has some wear, and some handwriting. Some of the first few pages have some foxing, and most of the pages have light, even, age-related yellowing. There is some writing in pencil on some of the pages, which could easily be removed. One or two pages have come loose. However, all of the relevent information, diagrams and patterns are easy to see and use.
