Excerpt from A Complete Course in Dressmaking: How to Make Men's Clothes Cleaning Materials Index

Him. You'll stretch your clothes' dollar a long way, too, if you spend it over the piece goods counter instead of in the haberdasher shop. A shirt will cost only the price of four yards of twenty-seven inch madras. If you get the making habit, you can cut down on the cost of underwear, nightshirts and pajamas, too.

When you have made your first shirt or pajamas or bathrobe or smoking jacket, you'll be surprised how easily the work slips along. It won't take as long as it would to have turned four yards of madras out some frilly garment for yourself. About the most forbidding statement that can be made about men's clothing is, "There is only one right way to stitch and finish them." It's not like a blouse where you can choose between three or four different ways of turning your seams.
