Sewing And Fitting
I found an excellent sewing reference book at a local used-book emporium. 360 pages bound in a three-ring binder, with tabs. It is a beautiful book. It covers sewing just about everything, and also has invaluable Tailoring sections. I have been looking for the Reader's Digest Sewing Book that is highly recommended, but this one looks like it will fit the bill.

I also found a Threads publication about fitting clothing. It is filled with some excellent articles about fitting clothing for human sizes that I am hoping I will be able to translate into 1/3 doll scale.
