In the thirties a dutch publisher issued films about the tailoring trade for educational purposes. Here are a couple of them:

It doesn't seem to have any sound attached or is it just my computer?

I knew that Misset issued a lot of journals/books about the tailoring trade, but I didn't know they made films as well.
It's interesting to me that in the second video the tailor shows the relation between morning coat, jacket and waistcoat.

A good tailor always draft the waist coat into the coat.

Standing while drafting probably quater scale patterns looks painful to me too.
These two videos were part of a film series consisting of nine instructional films. I think the second one is a two in one.
I've sent two emails to find out about the other six films and I hope we can watch those too. You'll never know.
I will keep you posted.
