Book: The New Vogue Sewing Book
Author : Butterick
This new edition brings all the sewing techniques up to date to include the latest equipment, ideas and supplies: everything the dressmaker needs to know to create professional, fashionable-looking garments.
This is an old book that has been out of print for decades, but is still the best reference book. .Classic techniques do not change. It remains an excellent reference, if you don't mind the dated photos. I have never found a better book.
