Publisher Comments:

The newest addition to Barron's 200 Q&A series for needlecraft enthusiasts employs the easy-reference Q&A format as it provides practical solutions to the 200 most frequent problems do-it-yourself dressmakers encounter. Typical questions with answers and instructions include--

  • How do I sew a zipper into a seam?
  • Can I shorten a zipper?
  • What scissors should I use when cutting out fabric?
  • What is a seam ripper?
  • What is a raglan sleeve?

    Other questions deal with machine stitching, hand-sewing, measuring and fitting, waistbands and belts, tucks and pleats, collars and necklines, and sleeves and pockets. More than 200 color illustrations supplement most answers with visual demonstrations.
