Hi To my fantastic Burdastyle community,
I come across a cool new fashion student site last week, that has links to various free pdf downloads or read on line vintage pattern drafting, sewing, dressmaking, lace making and millinery books. My own personal little gem find was a vintage sewing machine embroidery book with some beautiful coloured pics inside. Hope you find this useful. xxx

    AT: link to tailoring you will find many books that illustrate drafting both men and women’s garments. Enjoy, but save to a CD unless you posses terabytes of storage. Nehmah Sorry, but I couldn’t link to the exact pages, however, if you enter “Tailoring” and “all media types” you should find them. N

      Hi! How do you download the books? Let’s say I’ve found a book or text I want to have. I can see under it’s name how many times it’s been downloaded. So I open the page of the book and I dont see any download button anywhere… what do I do?

    TO: Bohemiannow, At the Archive’s home page, click on “TEXT”; enter “tailoring” in the Search box. When the list of books is showing, click on a title. The next page should show a picture of the front cover and some random pages. A list of the ways you can down load will be under the picture. I use “B/W PDF” for a complete but smaller download to my disk or hard drive. If you have any problems, post to my wall or here and I will try to answer. Cordially, Nehmah

    Annie took it down temporarily, she’s been experiencing many challenges for awhile now. I should call her, she’s a neat gal with lots of generous and positive energy.
