    Hi all,

    This is what i was looking for sometime back in IL. But couldn't find, may be I didn't do a proper search :p. After doing a lot of web search for online tailoring classes and classes close by, i couldn't attend classes having my young kid in mind. So went searching for books on tailoring.Thank God I found a book on cutting. I don't know if many of u know about this, but for those haven't heard of this, I'm giving the info, this was very useful to me.

    The name of the book is "ZARAPKAR System of Cutting" by Navneet Publications. It is a Govt. approved book on tailoring and cutting. One of the author's, the Principal of Zarapkar Tailoring College, Mumbai. I got it from 'Odyssey', Chennai. Rs. 60. Hope u find this info useful!

    But whats here in IL is also very very useful in fact in more detail and more clear here.. Thankyou friends!

    Love,
    Rajani

    Hi Nemo,

    Sorry for the delay in my reply..
    Was just thinking how to post it here. It has a lot of pages and it is a lot of work too.. I dont know if I will have enough time for that.. I will let you know if there is any other option than this..

    Thanks

    Hai all
    when I tried to get information about tailoring specially for Indian dresses I found a book name. When I requested the publisher to send me that book they said they will take orders from within India. Can u please check if this book is available in Chennai? Then I ask my friend to buy it. Currently she is not in India that’s why I am troubling you people. Thank u very much for the committed people who are sharing their knowledge.
