I stumbled upon this today in an unsuccessful search for one of Erwin's books and am posting the link as I've not seen it before or referenced in any other book's biblios.




There might be something useful to extract despite being so dated. Best rgds.

Thank you very much for all your input.
I have ordered the Cabrera book and Von Nordheim,Claire Shaeffer I already own,I hope to receive them soon.
Thanks to Mansie I got some very interesting reading material too.
On the Scribd link of Pfaff 260 you can also find a number of books to read and also download if you wish to subscribe,including the Tailoring book Zephyr mentioned,I have even found a Rundschau book:Damen jacke und mantel.
I have bookmarked a list of available books,if you are interested I will share them.
For now I keep practicing my skills and reading and hope to share some of my efforts very soon.

Women tailoring is VERY hard. I'm an appreciate myself and I find it pretty complicate but there's great art in it. I live in Bangkok, and there's a great tailor shop here which is https://www.fashiongalleria.biz/ and they do an excellent job in that department, but unfortunately they don't post much of that in their social media, however here's a photo of how they handle the process:



Needless to say it is a gigantic market, because women tend to buy more clothes than men and hence be more concerned about getting tailored clothing, so it is a good area for specialization.


Regarding books here are some recommendations:


  1. https://www.amazon.c...n/dp/087005435X
  2. https://www.amazon.c...e/dp/B0007EF4NW

I hope my answer helps you :) even though I'm an apprentice, I know a couple of things about this haha
