An excerpt:

"Lingerie is an integral part of the fashions of the day. With each change in basic silhouette -- each new cycle of fashion -- undergarments change in design, also.

When small waists are in vogue, a lip that is bulky or loose at the waist-line prevents a perfect fit. When skirts are long and narrow, a short wide slip worn under them will not only ruin their fit, but produce active discomfort to the wearer. It is essential, therefore, that you learn how to make attractive and well-fitting undergarments...

...While drafting the patterns for the various brassieres, shorts, and slips, remember that simplicity in line and perfection in fit are essential. These undergarments should be fitted to conform with the present fashion silhouette."
