1. CLOTHING FOR WOMEN BY LAURA I. BALDT, B.S. (1916) 490 pages
THIS book presents practical working directions for the design and construction of women's clothing, including various kinds of outer- and undergarments. It includes problems embracing the fundamental principles involved in the selection and design of clothing ; the theory and use of color ; pattern-making and clothing construction. As the mission of the text is chiefly the exposition of constructive processes, the selection of apparel and choice of material has been treated in a manner as best fitted into the scheme of the book. A more scientific treatment of textiles may be found in the numerous
texts listed in the bibliography.

ANNA M. COOLEY, B.S.
ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF HOUSEHOLD ARTS EDUCATION, TEACHERS COLLEGE
COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY, AUTHOR OF " FOOD AND HOUSEHOLD
MANAGEMENT " AND " SHELTER AND CLOTHING "
THIS volume, like its companion, Food and Health, is intended for use in the elementary schools in those sections
of the country where the home life is of the type described. It is hoped that both volumes will be used by the home
people as well as by those at the school. This volume treats largely of the clothing problems and
of the elementary work in sewing which precedes garment making. It also includes the subject of the leading textile
materials, where they are grown 'and how they are manufactured ready for our use.
Such topics as the hygiene of
clothing, buying materials and clothing wisely, the clothing budget, the use of the commercial pattern, the care and repair
of clothing, color combinations, and attractiveness in dress, are woven in with the lessons on sewing and textiles,
in a very simple and elementary way.
3. Home Dressmaking and the Art of Good Dressing 104 pages
BY EASTON DE BARRAS.
bringing this work before my readers it has
been my endeavour to portray
" Home Dressmaking"
as simply and attractively as possible. In every family there should at least be one girl who understands dressmaking; who can cut and fit as well as sew, for there is no telling how soon reverses may come, and girls, well off at present,
reduced to earning their own living. Apart from this reason, it is very convenient as well as economical to have a dressmaker in the family. In the matter of making over things and making up everyday frocks for younger children, it is well to have one who can be depended upon to go on with the work and take all responsibility, Therefore, mothers be wise in time, and see that one at least of your daughters is taught dressmaking in all its details.
4. Dressmaking as a Trade for Women in Massachusetts (1916) 196 pages
BY MAY ALLINSON, A. M.
The occupation of dressmaker ranked third in the United States in 1900 in the number of women employed, 338,144 women 16 years of age and over being engaged in it. 1 Only two occupations that of servant and waitress and that of agricultural laborer surpassed it in the number of women employed, but in none did women form a larger proportion of the total employees. Because of the numbers the trade employs, because it is woman's traditional occupation, and because it
provides opportunities for development, training for the dressmaking trade has held a large and a logical place in the curriculum of vocational schools for girls.
5. Knitting And Sewing (1918) 224 pages
How to Make Seventy Useful Articles for Men in the Army and Navy
MAUD CHURCHILL NICOLL
THIS little book was composed under unusual
My wife, whose book tMs is, was one of those Americans who, from the outbreak of the War in Europe, was passionately attached to the cause of the Allies, and religiously believed, after the invasion of Belgium and Northern France, that it was
the duty of our country, without delay or attempts at neutrality, to come to their support. In December, 1914, she began a course in nursing at the Y. W. C. A., and by April of 1915 had completed her course and received her diploma.
In July, 1915, she went abroad for service in England, but had hardly begun when she was run down
by an automobile and barely escaped with her life. Ever since then she has lived in London, necessarily spending a large part of her time in bed, and after two and one-half years of treatment is still unable to walk, except a little with crutches.
During her long convalescence she, devoted herself to knitting and sewing for the soldiers and sailors. Many of her friends among them were constantly coming and going, and from them sltm learned at first hand just what their needs were, and
in what articles they found the most comfort.
She then decided to put the result of her experience in a book, in the hope that it might be useful to others who were knitting and sewing, or willing to knit and sew, for the cause, feeling that in that way she could make her largest contribution to the
comfort and welfare of the boys at the front.
6. Scientific Sewing and Garment Cutting (1898) 168 pages
For Use in Schools and in the Home
BY ANTOINETTE VAN HOESEN WAKEMAN and LOUISE M. HELLER
THE system of instruction set forth in this book makes sewing and garment cutting an educational factor identical with manual training. It has been the primary aim of the authors to lead the pupils to think independently, coordinately, and constructively. To this end the reason for each step in the course of instruction has been set forth explicitly, and the teacher is urged to make these reasons plain to the pupils, that they may work from intelligent conviction, and not mechanically. To fail in this is to defeat the first and most important aim of the system, which is founded not only upon broad educational principles, but
upon mathematical verities.
7. Text-book on Domestic art, with illustrations and Drafts (1911) 264 pages
CARRIE CRANE INGALLS
Teacher of Domestic Art in Cogswell Polyteclrical College
The art of sewing, intuitive in every girl, should be developed ; if a mother can not teach her little daughter elementary sewing, why should not the State provide teachers for this important subject? Indeed, not only for little daughters,
but for growing and grown-up girls, should skilled teachers be employed, in sewing, dressmaking, embroidery and millinery, just as they are provided for foreign languages, mathematics, art, music, etc. While I would not compel nor require
every girl to become an adept in the domestic arts, still she deserves the opportunity of this training
if she wishes it.
