Here here to readers digest! I have both the complete sewing book and the complete needlework book. Great references.
For tailoring I would recommend the Singer Tailoring book, good clear instructions and many detailed color pictures. It is out of print but I have seen it at several used book stores. Also Classic Tailoring Techniques: A Construction Guide for Men's Wear
it is a more in depth tailoring book with common alterations. It is a bit expensive, but good and what we used in my tailoring class. There is also a Guide for Women's Wear, but I haven't used that...yet. As for pattern drafting I don't know what to say. I would look at textbooks for pattern drafting and draping. Draping for Apparel Design
is the book that I have I think...I will have more info in the fall when I take my draping class!
But again these books because they are textbooks (and not very common) can be pricey.
