I’m an intermediate seamstress who is starting to break into the area of formalwear. I’m really interested in buying a good book (or purchasing a good online course) that will comprehensively cover the skills of sewing women’s special occasion clothing.
Can anyone make any recommendations? I have just purchased “The Birth of the Bustier” by Kenneth D. King (he taught a class I took at FIT, amazing guy and teacher!) but I’m looking for something that comprehensively covers dress construction too.
Thanks in advance!
