4.0 out of 5 stars New title needed, 1 Feb. 2006
This review is from: Tailoring: A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating Beautiful Customised Garments (Paperback)
Tailoring: A Step-by-step Guide to Creating Beautiful Customised JACKETS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Although this is a very thorough book, it does only look at how to tailor a jacket, so do not think you get step by step instructions for everything.
However, it does have some very useful information, with photos of every stage.
BUT another point to have is that it does not tell you how to draw up your own pattern block, rather it just tells you how to adapt a pre-brought pattern instead. Useful but not what i was particularily after.
All in all a rather useful book for a first time jacket maker, giving you the hard and the easy option on things (always useful to have!). Alittle dated looking now, but still worth the money.

Well, tailoring by definition is something pertaining to jackets and coats. Have you ever heard of a tailored blouse?

I think the reviewer meant suits, trousers, skirts, dresses etc. Tailoring is about sculpting fabric to follow design and body lines using a specific range of cutting and construction techniques and interlinings, etc. This theoretically could be applied to many garments beyond jackets and coats! And "tailored blouses" do exist, but only in the sense they are fitted. Having made period evening trousers earlier this year with very little guidance from the pattern book I was using, I would have found a tailoring book covering the final details of tailored trouser construction of great help, so I too am a bit disappointed this book only covers jackets.
