Back in the 1960s I had a book written by a seamstress in New York City. It was written as a memoir but it also had many sewing ideas and there were instructions how to create an unusual jacket just by measuring the distance from the edges of the fabric (no pattern). I did sew it back then and I’d love to be able to re-create it.
I was hoping that someone might remember the author or title. I’m sure that it’s long out of print but there might be a copy for sale somewhere on line.
