This is Stretch & Sew Instruction Book For Sewing With Knit Fabrics by Ann Person. It was first copyrighted in 1967 and lastly in 1970. With this book, you will also be receiving handmade sewing patterns that were made using this book. We aren't sure what size the patterns are, but thought it best to include them with this book. Each one comes in a manila envelope and each one is marked as to what pattern is inside. They are as follows: Classic Jacket Blouse, Cap Sleeve With Tab Front (Pointed or Square Collar), Raglan Sleeve and Set-In Sleeve.

Here are the contents of the book by chapter:

The handmade patterns appear to be in very good vintage condition. The book has wear around the edges, there is a stain on the bottom of the pages but it didn't stain all the way up and stayed at the bottom. There is scuffing on the front cover. The binding is tight and all the pages are intact.
