Publisher Comments:

By avoiding the guessing game of matching fabrics to patterns, sewing mavens can create successful garments that are compatible with both the requirements of a pattern and the style of the wearer. Many topics central to choosing the proper material are included here, such as fiber content and construction, weight, drape considerations, wrinkle tendency, and finished garment care. Determining sewability includes more than design and interfacing, so this guide instructs sewers on the finer points of reading pattern envelopes, interpreting design guidelines, and knowing what five fabrics are easiest to sew. This DVD also includes a section on choosing flattering fabrics so clothes coordinate throughout a wardrobe.
