To bring the “professional touch” into Home Dressmaking the author has collected here the results of her experience as a dressmaker, and great pains have been taken to emphasize the steps essential to success in every description of method and, as it were, to lay a finger on the exact spot where special care must be taken. The chapter on Fixing is specially designed to bring out the angle of vision of the professional and place it within reach of the ordinary person.”
