Amylin challenged me to that "find the 5th sentence on page 123 thingy" and here tis!
Important points to remember on stitching, trimming, and pressing are shown and explained for your benefit. The construction procedures for different parts of the garment and the individual versions are presented separately. A title in large bold type introduces each section.
The book is a 1975 edition of The Vogue Sewing Book that I picked up at a flea market. It has the greatest illustrations...

This one got GREAT reviews and is hailed as a "awesome collection of information from a thousand different sources on the techniques sewers have used since fabric was invented, to change the surface of an initially flat textile". Cool!
Also well reviewed as a reference guide. I keep coming across sewing concepts that leave me scratching my head. And one reviewer said "ample-sized, crisp and clear color photos accompanying each technique" - and I loves me some good photographs.
Also a bit weird that I didn't already have this book since I already recommended it! Though, really, her page - though in Swedish which makes my eyes twitch - is soooo full of information. I can't wait to see the book!
And the grand total was $11.86 because of the referral fees from the Associates program.
How great is that!
