Make your Own PatternsBook - 1995
This reference should be suitable for anyone wishing to make their own patterns.

It also includes quarter scale patterns for a basic dress, blouse, jacket, trousers and skirt for a standard size 12 figure. Additional instructions are included on how to scale these patterns up or down.
