Abstract: Women generally are faced with the problem of having their clothes fit properly. Whether their dresses are made at home or bought ready-made, they must fit correctly to look fashionable and to be comfortable and serviceable to the wearer. Dresses made by mass production cannot assure a dress in every size to fit every individual, but the dresses should be cut and constructed so as to eliminate the necessity for many alterations and to allow for the alterations that are necessary. A dress which fits the figure is more likely to sell than one which needs many adjustments, costly in both time and money.
