Although rather dated, here is a book on ladies' tailoring from The Tailor & Cutter from around the 1920-30s. It carries no publication date. The bobby haircuts and boyish silhouettes depicted suggest the 1920s, but the style of the illustrations is strongly reminiscent of other T&C texts from the 1930s. So I would guess late 1920s to early 1930s.

When are these from Sator and would they be relevant for today's cuts? I have gotten a couple of inquiries for some ladies work but realized I do not have anything for the modern lady.

See above for discussion of the approximate date. BTW the presence of a side body dates the cuts more to the 1930s.
