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!!
