Addressing the difficulties of at-home sewers, the topics in this DVD will improve skills in making beautiful finished garments. The segments are devoted to subjects such as sewing and pressing darts; finishing both lapped and invisible zippers; stabilizing knit faced edges; adding single-welt pockets; lining methods including a lined-to-the-edge camisole; machine embroidery tips; and covering snaps for a couture touch. By following along at home, anyone can create professional-quality fitted garments of their own.
