The Bishop Method of Clothing Construction is full of really useful sewing information, especially for a beginner. The book is broken down into 15 chapters, including a basic "how-to" on sewing and the use of equipment and machines; everything you could want to know about cutting, patterns, measurement, and tailoring; and adding details. Just a few include grain perfection, perfection in stitching, and perfection in pressing.

There are pictures, diagrams, and references to other chapters with the projects. Also included is a thorough glossary of the terms used in the book and basic sewing terms. The latter chapters are detailed in making items work for your body type and with any and all patterns.

The Bishop Method of Clothing Construction is an excellent addition to your vintage sewing collection or home library.


The book The Bishop Method of Clothing Construction is in good vintage condition for its age, with no rips or tears.
