Brilliant book and damaged DVD,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Couture Cardigan Jacket, The (Couture Sewing) (Paperback)
I have pre-ordered this book in May 2013 and got it today's morning ( November 2013 ) and have to tell it worths to wait it all those months!
Clear instructions, nice pictures in the book and more over - DVD disk and you are privileged to watch Mrs Schaeffer and her step-by-step tutorial! Absolutely over the moon!
This book of course is not for complete novice. But if you are experienced sewer and determined to create a "real" Chanel jacket for yourself you will be delighted with this book.
I am very keen to start my new project and can not express how exited I am!
Highly recommend to everybody who is addicted to couture home sewing!
few days later I discovered some problems with DVD disk - on some places it does not play and the phrase "skipping over the damaged area" occurs.
When I am trying to restart it from the next chapter, it starts from the beginning! So I could not watch the final 30 minutes of it - very disappointing because I was really enjoying the video tutorial and it was really helpful addition to this brilliant book. The disk is obviously brand new and I treated it very carefully - from original pack straight to the computer.
