This is the reason I love to sew. Making a garment "couture" lies in all of the finishing details of a garment. Hand stitching the sleeve lining into a jacket, matching patterns at seam lines, and that little extra time spent tailoring are all elements that turn good designs into amazing haute couture pieces. Couture Sewing Techniques explores all of the methods and skills needed to create quality, detail oriented couture garments. There are many great close up photographs of vintage and couture clothes interspersed with instructions concerning all aspects of clothing construction and finishing, be it by hand or sewing machine. This is intended for sewing enthusiasts, tailors, and seamstresses who have achieved an intermediate skill level and are looking to move from the world of home sewing into quality fashion industry construction. ~ Reviewed by Meghan Goodwin
