Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This new edition of a popular tailoring guide is double in size, adds color photography, and features new and speedier techniques that embrace fusible interfacing and an all-machine-sewn lining technique used in ready-to-wear. More than 700 photos and illustrations accompany instructions detailed enough to allow a beginner who has never taken a sewing class to glide through chapters on patterns and fabrics, proper cutting and marking, methods for pressing and seam finishing, and how-tos that ensure a perfect fit. The choice and tailoring of collars, buttonholes, pockets, and mitered back vents are shown to create individuality and flair, while special sections provide information about stripes and plaids, men's jackets, finishing touches, and helpful tools and notions.

Synopsis:

In this demonstrational video, Marta Alto emphasizes basic techniques as she sews a lapel-style jacket with double-welt pockets, vented sleeves, sleeve heads, and a lining. Divided into separate segments, the DVD allows the viewer to stop, complete a set of instructions, and then continue. Additional tips cover patterns and fabrics, proper cutting and marking, pressing and seam finishing, and how-tos that ensure a perfect fit.
