Illustrated with B&W photographs and diagrams. From the cover: “From the outset, Ann Ladbury aims to save time which can then be spent on other activities. In the first part of the book there is a section on what to choose in the way of pattern and fabric to ensure that time-wasting processes are avoided This is followed by standard style features such as waists, hems, seams and edges — but all contain many tips and new ideas on how to complete them quickly, yet still achieve a good result. There is even a quick way of doing appliqué. The second section of the book is devoted to simple designs that can be made in a few hours, all using the quick construction methods described in part one.”
