Update: Many thanks to Kathy, who found another copy of the book! I’ve updated the links below per her info.

Are you interested in designing your own patterns? I found a free download of Modern Pattern Design: The Complete Guide to the Creation of Patterns as a Means of Designing Smart Wearing Apparel, by Harriet Pepin (1942). The PDF does not include the children’s section and “four instructions to be missing pants skirts, and even on each side” (?!). The last bit is Google’s less-than-clear translation from German.

By the way, I found out about the download from Off the Cuff. It’s a nice blog from the owner of Fashion Sewing Supply, and it has various sewing tips, techniques, tutorials, etc.

(Actually, the PDF has a different cover design, but I thought this one was prettier. ;-))
