Book Description: Fashion designer and expert sewist Lynda Maynard makes professional sewing and finishing techniques accessible to every sewist with clear instructions in simple step-by-step stages in The Dressmaker’s Handbook of Couture Sewing Techniques. This handbook unlocks the door to stunning results with better shaping, simpler construction methods, and professional finishing touches. Lynda also explains several seemingly difficult “secrets,” from making bindings and finishing for hems, armholes, and necklines, to underpinnings and structuring techniques. She also teaches how to master finishing touches from textured stitches to couching and applique.
A complete guide to the fabrics suited to each technique and inspirational fashion photography are also included.
