It's just the best!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: "Vogue" Sewing - revised and updated (Paperback)
It's no longer possible to purchase French Couturier dressmaking patterns from Vogue pattern catalogues anymore - I don't know why - but instead, here are all the instructions as used in those couturier patterns. This book shows how to correctly complete the easiest pieces of a garment, all the way up to the most ornate and complex. Here is all the guidance needed to create something very simple or very demanding. If you want to sew and construct clothing well and successfully, this book will help greatly. All the information here in clear and straightforward, both diagrams and instructions. An essential manual for anyone, from learning to sew as a total beginner to an advanced partitioner. Even if you're an 'old hand', this is a great refresher for when you can't quite remember how it was done.
An essential tool for all dressmakers. Highly recommended.
