My father was a dress cutter starting after WWII. A dress cutter was a person who worked for a company that made dresses. His job was to pull rolls of material back and forth along a long table. When the pile reached a certain height he would put the pattern parts that made up the dress on top of the pile and would use a machine to cut them out.
