Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The world of haute couture is a place where only a privileged few can ever hope to reside, right? Wrong. Fashion historian Claire B. Shaeffer opened the door to this exclusive realm in her authoritative guide to the techniques that define couture sewing. And now, the industry bible, Couture Sewing Techniques, has been revised and updated throughout — with new photos and a chapter on specialty fabrics. No one can unravel couture garment construction the way Schaeffer can, from the art of hand sewing to mastering edge finishes, from classic closures to shaping a garment for a perfect fit. Readers learn all the basics — and more importantly: how to apply the techniques — on skirts and sleeves, pockets and jackets, evening gowns, and more. Gorgeous photos, clear illustrations, and concise language combine to make this the most complete couture-sewing course available.

Synopsis:

The author of "The Fabric Sewing Guide" presents ideas for adding the elegance, detail, and polish of haute couture to home sewing. Detailed instructions and illustrations make high style a snap. 92 color photos. 39 b&w photos. Charts.

Synopsis:

A nationally known sewing expert introduces readers to the world of haute couture, sharing the craftmanship of the most skilled artisans in the world, including those in the workrooms of Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Givenchy, and Baleciaga. Photos and illustrations.

Synopsis:

Sewers who have ever longed to create clothing with the distinctive look of haute couture will love this book. They'll learn the finer points of hand sewing, shaping, and finishing for a high-end, professional look. This book is for all sewing enthusiasts who appreciate fine workmanship.
