Do you enjoy sewing your own shirts and blouses, but struggle with getting the right fit? In Sewing Shirts with a Perfect Fit, author, teacher, and renowned shirt-sewing expert David Page Coffin shows how you can easily transform the printed, multi-sized patterns included with the book (as well as patterns and favorite shirts you already have) into three different customized basic shirt silhouettes—loose, fitted, and tight—for both men and women. With detailed explanations of essential techniques; clear, step-by-step photos; and the basic patterns for sizes from XXXS to XXXL included in a pocket behind the front cover, learn to work with any body shape to achieve unique, personalized, and well-fitted basic shirt patterns for yourself or anyone else. First, learn about unique fitting options for shirts and the basics of draping fabrics to be wrinkle-free. With these techniques, you will discover how to get a great fit with almost no measuring for any and all body types, including plus-size and athletic figures. Using his couture-inspired draping methods on both standard and custom-shaped body forms (with great tips on how to make your own), David then demonstrates how to adjust shoulder and side seams, necklines, sleeves, and armholes, and add darts or new seams to achieve the fit you want for each silhouette. Once you've covered the basic concepts and techniques, put your knowledge into practice with the four distinctive, original step-by-step shirt design and construction projects that show a variety of classic shirt, shirt-jacket, and shirtdress stylesyou can make and perfectly fit with the included patterns. Sewing Shirts with a Perfect Fit will give you the skills you need to get the right fit every time!

In The Making of Modern Britain, Andrew Marr paints a fascinating portrait of life in Britain during the first half of the twentieth century as the country recovered from the grand wreckage of the British Empire. Between the death of Queen Victoria and the end of the Second World War, the nation was shaken by war and peace. The two wars were the worst we had ever known and the episodes of peace among the most turbulent and surprising. As the political forum moved from Edwardian smoking rooms to an increasingly democratic Westminster, the people of Britain experimented with extreme ideas as they struggled to answer the question ‘How should we live?’ Socialism? Fascism? Feminism? Meanwhile, fads such as eugenics, vegetarianism and nudism were gripping the nation, while the popularity of the music hall soared. It was also a time that witnessed the birth of the media as we know it today and the beginnings of the welfare state. Beyond trenches, flappers and Spitfires, this is a story of strange cults and economic madness, of revolutionaries and heroic inventors, sexual experiments and raucous stage heroines. From organic food to drugs, nightclubs and celebrities to package holidays, crooked bankers to sleazy politicians, the echoes of today's Britain ring from almost every page.

Documenting the difficult class relations between women slaveholders and slave women, this study shows how class and race as well as gender shaped women's experiences and determined their identities. Drawing upon massive research in diaries, letters, memoirs, and oral histories, the author argues that the lives of antebellum southern women, enslaved and free, differed fundamentally from those of northern women and that it is not possible to understand antebellum southern women by applying models derived from New England sources.

Making the Cut?

Low-Income Countries and the Global Clothing Value Chain in a Post-Quota and Post-Crisis World

The clothing sector has traditionally been a gateway to export diversification and industrial development for low-income countries (LICs) due to its low fix costs, relatively simple technology, and labor-intensive nature. It has served to absorb large numbers of unskilled, and mostly female, workers and build capital and know-how for more technologically advanced activities within and across sectors. But the environment for global clothing trade has changed significantly which may condition the role the sector can play in promoting export diversification and industrial development in LICs today. Main drivers have been the rise of global buyers and their global sourcing strategies, the phase out of quotas in the Multi-Fiber Arrangement (MFA), and, more recently, the global economic crisis. In the context of these changes, this study analyzes how the clothing sector can still provide a gateway to export diversification and industrial development for LICs today. The key objectives of this study are to assess main developments in the global clothing sector associated with the Multi-Fiber Arrangement (MFA) phase out, global buyers and their sourcing strategies, and the global economic crisis; analyze challenges that LICs are facing in the post-quota and post-crisis world in entering and upgrading within global clothing value chains; and identify policy recommendations to increase the competitiveness of LIC clothing exporters as well as to further their integration into and improve their positions within global clothing value chains. For the study interviews with buyers in the US, the EU and South Africa as well as case studies in Sub-Saharan African LICs (Kenya, Lesotho and Swaziland), Cambodia and Bangladesh were conducted. The study finds that global consolidation in the clothing sector has increased entry barriers at the country and firm level. This has created new challenges to LIC suppliers as low labor costs and preferential market access are not enough to be competitive in the clothing sector today. Suppliers with broad capabilities have been able to develop strategic relationships with global buyers. Marginal or new suppliers are entering the global value chains through intermediaries, but face limited upgrading opportunities. FDI plays an important role in integrated LICs into global clothing value chains, yet it needs to be used in a way that promotes and upgrades local clothing industries. Overall, the clothing sector still provides opportunities for export diversification and industrial development. However, this requires pro-active policies to increase the competitiveness and local embeddedness of LIC clothing exporters.

Die volle Ladung Leben - ein Klassiker der Underground-Literatur Mietskasernen, Arbeitslosigkeit, miese Pubs, viel Alkohol und jede Menge Drogen: das ist der Alltag in Leith, einem heruntergekommenen Vorort von Edinburgh. Das ist auch der Alltag von Renton, Spud, Begbie, Sick Boy und Dianne, einer Clique von jugendlichen Außenseitern, in deren Leben sich fast alles um Drogen dreht. Wer kein Junkie ist, wird bald einer werden oder war einer oder wird bald wieder einer sein. Neben Stuff, Rausch, Entzug, Sex, Frust und Gewalt gibt es aber auch noch die Musik. Und wenn diese Anti-Helden schon alle den Blues haben, so doch zumindest mit 160 beats per minute.
