I recently acquired a book titled Dressmaking by Isabel Horner. It was published in 1970, but it's a really handy book for different kinds of stitching, tells you about patterns, sewing machines, doing lining, gathering, taking in garments, seams, fittings, sleeves, hems, fastenings, plackets and openings, pockets, shirts, etc. The copy I have is falling apart and I got it for free from the used book store because they were just going to throw it out.

It's also great if you're heavily visual as it has a lot of diagrams, and gives you a better idea of how things are to look, and how to do them.
