Women's clothing loosens up as the Victorian Era comes to a close and women continue to open up due to current attitudes and women's interest in sports, including cycling and golf. (The previous great strides made by American women as they entered the field of business can be found in Women's Costume 1877-1885 by Charles Hecklinger). Here is a tailoring book by one of the most renowned tailors of the day known for being easy to follow and comprehensive. It also includes many illustrations of both tailored clothing and more casual wear, accessories and underclothes. There are instructions for a wide variety of garments and the braiding used for trim. It includes instructions for both the 'leg o'mutton' sleeve and the new slimmer sleeve which were defining fashion.
