Pattern alteration

I found this while scanning the internet archive for recent additions. It may be useful; it may be dated. For all I know, the US government still makes this book, in updated form, to those who look-- but they are closed at the moment

It can be downloaded from the link you posted. You can either download as epub or pdf and save it to read on your computer.

Many of the alterations are the same today as they were back then.

Wouldn't recommend epub-- on this site, they tend to be full of ocr errors.

How have I lived without this site??? There are so many things to look at, from publications to videos.

Just what I needed... one more place to while away time.

This reminds me of the sewing book that my grandma bought me chapter-by-chapter at the farm store in the 1970's--all in all the info seems to be the basis for all the sewing books that have come out since. Sometimes when I want to buy a book, I leaf through it (or look on Amazon) and everything seems the same except different pictures. This must be the source code--LOL--indeed--interesting!
