This section is from the book "Scientific Sewing And Garment Cutting", by Antoinette Van Hoesen Wakeman. Also available from Amazon: Scientific Sewing And Garment Cutting: For Use In Schools And In The Home.
This work on Scientific Sewing and Garment Cutting owes its publication to the constant and increasing demand for information in regard to the system which it explains. This demand has been created by the unqualified success of this form of manual training in the school where it has been taught, substantially as here set forth, for the past six years.
Since it is not a theory reduced to possible practice, but the exposition of a system that has been productive of the most excellent results, it is given to the public in the confident belief that it will serve a useful purpose.
