Excerpt from Instructions in Dressmaking, Basting and Fitting: As Set Forth by the Moschcow, Model Waist Lining

The following is a brief treatise on the art of dress-fitting, as practised in the past and present age; the progress of which has long been seriously hindered by arbitrary and inaccurate systems and methods of cutting.

"The Moschcowitz Model Waist Lining" is an invention and an invaluable production, the result of years of patient thought and laborious mechanical experiment, founded upon our life-time experience in dress-making; and destined to set aside and absolutely dispense with these false methods in cutting; all of which have signally failed to guarantee a perfectly-fitting garment for the human figure.

Hitherto it has been generally supposed that the secret of success in dress-making consisted in the cutting: whereas "The Moschcowitz Model Waist Lining" demonstrates that the triumph of the art lies in fitting; and in making the cutting in all cases subordinate to, and dependent upon a perfect fit.

This will be manifest when it is remembered that notwithstanding all that may be said of the divinity of the human form, and its perfect diversity: yet experience teaches that there are innumerable irregularities of figure which the best methods of cutting are unable to master. For example, take two forms registering the same measurement of bust, say 34 inches; while in other respects these forms present an absolute contrast. One happens to be very full across the front and narrow across the back; while the other may recline forward, have a narrow chest, a round back, and large shoulder blades. It is evident that the one requires a garment having a broad front and a narrow back; while the other requires a broad back and a narrow front.
