The latest in tailoring

August 1900

Dear sister,

I enclose for your perusal a copy of the latest tailoring guide from the Dobbs Brothers entitled the United States Tailor System. You would use this along with your French curve to draft patterns much more accurately. Not to say that you have any difficulty with clothing but I feel it is always good to read of new techniques and methods do you not also? This particular guide is updated from the ’95 version and includes enhancements for drafting clothing for children and adult women. I hope that you find this useful.

Give my best to all.

Your loving sister,

Mattie
