Synopsis

This book takes the mystery out of couture techniques which many dressmakers assume are either extremely difficult, or only for the professional fashion designers. Dressmaker's Handbook shows that these skills can easily be acquired thanks to clear instructions in simple, step-by-step stages. Containing a complete guide to the fabrics suited to each technique and insider secrets from professional dressmakers, the book also includes catch-up panels and refresher notes for novices. The book is divided into 3 sections: couture bindings and finishes, designer underpinnings and finishing touches. Overall a book of fascinating techniques to take any sewing enthusiast to new levels of skill, enjoyment and confidence.
