It is no wonder that we have so many different shapes and sizes - and yet we try to be fitted with a certain size dress. You can clearly see the need for custom made clothes. I have found that fitting is the most valuable asset a person can learn from this pattern drafting course. The Chinese began this method of pattern designing centuries ago. The solution to the problems perplexing every woman who sews for herself or for others is found in drafting individual patterns from simple, easy to understand formulas, using individual measurements. In learning pattern construction, you learn the correct placement of darts, the transference of darts to more desirable places for fit, design and for usefulness. In understanding pattern construction you will know where, when and how to alter those frustrating commercial patterns. When the lessons are understood, you will be able to mix readily any of the basic parts and therefore can easily copy any design that might ever be seen. " The athor lists essential equipment: Large right triangle, a curve stick, an accurate tape measure, a compass, and paper. The publisher has included a large right triangle and a curve stick, made from stiff cardboard, which are loosely laid-in; the other items are easily obtained locally.

HOUSEHOLD. "When Rybczynski realized that in all his years of architectural training the word 'comfort' had been mentioned only once, he began to cast about for a definition of that elusive term. It was a curious omission from an otherwise rigorous curriclum; one would have thought that comfort was a crucial issue in preparing for the architectural profession. This book is an attempt to discover the meaning of comfort. I had found that the architectural ideals that I had been taught in school frequently disregarded - if they did not altogether contradict - my clients' conventional notion of comfort. It was only when my wife and I built our own home that I discovered at first hand the fundamental povety of modern architectural ideas. I also began to suspect that women understand more about domestic comfot than do men. This is not a book about interior decoration. It is about the idea of the home. " ... Index.
