A beautifully presented technique-resource, this is a guide for dressmakers new to the craft and for those who want to take their skills further.
This definitive how-to book features scores of step-by-step sequences showing every kind of technique, from simply using and adapting paper patterns, to specialist couture-inspired seaming techniques that will take your garment-making skills to a new level.

She brings her neat tricks and sage advice to all aspects of the book, and especially to the “Help!” features: troubleshooting fixes for the real-world mistakes that are part of our dressmaking experience.
