Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vintage Couture Tailoring (Hardcover)
There's not much to say other than that. As a technical manual of tailoring techniques it's probably the best I've bought. One caveat is that this is very much old school, manual tailoring. There's a lot of shaping, ironing, basting and buttonholing all done by hand. Takes through every stage of making a women's formal jacket, though I'm not sure you could actually teach yourself some of the techniques (like shaping with an iron) just from the book on its own, but it's a wonderful, inspirational book to dip into.
