Mathematics applied to dressmaking (1993) [pdf] (lms.ac.uk)

I greatly appreciate articles like this because i vaguely know topology and vaguely know how to make a dress but when explained like this i understand both in much greater detail than before. I think it's because the stuff that doesn't make sense from one domain makes sense when explained in the other and it makes for a better understanding.
