Product description

From the Back Cover

"A surefire bible for any sewer who yearns to copy the high-priced couture garments seen at retail."--Victor Costa, Fashion Designer

"Serious sewing students have always looked to Claire Schaeffer's inside view of the industry as the link between ordinary home sewing and real professionalism. This book contains the information and techniques that we have been yearning for, asking for, and needing to evaluate the quality of our work."--Linda Lee, Owner of The Sewing Workshop, San Francisco, California

Internationally known sewing expert Claire Schaeffer reveals the secrets of high-fashion legends such as Geoffrey Beene, Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta, Yves Saint Laurent, Liz Claiborne, and Calvin Klein. Claire's illustrated, step-by-step instructions let you duplicate the design details made famous in expensive ready-to-wear. Plus, Claire's timesaving patternmaking and copying methods can be used to create one-of-a-kind, original garments.

Only a few simple tools and patternmaking skills are needed to copy your favorite garments.

Claire Schaeffer has studied in the high-fashion workrooms of New York and Europe and is known for her easy-to-follow and innovative sewing techniques. She has authored more than a dozen books, including Couture Sewing Techniques and Claire Schaeffer's Fabric Sewing Guide.
