A beautifully presented technique-resource, this is a guide for dressmakers new to the craft and for those who want to take their skills further. This definitive how-to book features scores of step-by-step sequences showing every kind of technique, from simply using and adapting paper patterns, to specialist couture-inspired seaming techniques that will take your garment-making skills to a new level. Author Jules Fallon runs a hugely popular and over-subscribed series of dressmaking classes, which means she knows exactly the techniques that everyone gets stuck on.
She brings her neat tricks and sage advice to all aspects of the book, and especially to the "Help!" features: troubleshooting fixes for the real-world mistakes that are part of our dressmaking experience.
