Tailoring is something that, although less in demand nowadays, is an excellent craft that many appreciate. If you want to start studying this unique trade, we invite you to check out our collection of the best tailoring books in PDF format. Read on, as we will give you a brief overview of its origin and the techniques used by tailors for hundreds of years.

The origin of tailoring can be found in the historical period of the Middle Ages, where the European nobility demanded tailor-made garments to differentiate themselves from the plebs.

However, during the Renaissance the trade became more popular due to the rise of fashion. From then on, interest in tailoring would increase, until the industrial age when garments began to be mass-produced. These facts can be found more precisely in the books on tailoring presented here.

Tailoring is the craft of making tailor-made garments by hand. The customer’s measurements are taken, the patterns are cut and measured, and adjustments are made with needles and with the fabric already fitted to the body.

With the help of a sewing machine, the pieces are joined together and the suit is ready. Tailoring has always been dedicated to the creation of men’s garments, as the making of women’s garments is often called sewing, and those who do it are called seamstresses.

Tailoring also requires expertise, as it pursues the art of elegance and distinction. Many prefer the exclusive design of a tailor to buying clothes in shops, mass-produced, knowing that many people will wear the same piece and detract from its originality.
