I have other books by Claire, but this one is fantastic in terms of the layout, pictures and the added bonus of the DVD.
The book is clear and concise and a joy to refer to.

Would highly recommend this book.
Can't wait for her book on the iconic Chanel Jacket, as I have purchased Claires latest Vogue pattern - Chanel style jacket and successfully followed all her couture tips and techniques. This has resulted in a superior finish!!

If you want a book which will give you a good basis for sewing a tailored garment with most of the work hand sewn then this is a good book. It is a dressmaking book on tailoring, but still very good. I bought this at the same time as 'Vintage couture tailoring' and if I had to buy just one for tailoring methods it would be the latter. This is a good book for looking up stitches etc rather than instructions on how to put a jacket together.
