    ITEM#: 13002197

    Claire Shaeffer is an acclaimed couture designer and recognized expert in the history of fashion. She gives twice-yearly workshops to select few, and has published many books on the topic of couture techniques including the first edition of Couture Sewing Techniques, which has sold more than 80,000 copies.

    "The world of haute couture is a place where only a privileged few can ever hope to reside, right? Wrong. Fashion historian Claire B. Shaeffer opened the door to this exclusive realm in her authoritative guide to the techniques that define couture sewing. And now, the industry bible, Couture Sewing Techniques, has been revised and updated throughout -- with new photos and a chapter on specialty fabrics. No one can unravel couture garment construction the way Schaeffer can, from the art of hand sewing to mastering edge finishes, from classic closures to shaping a garment for a perfect fit. Readers learn all the basics -- and more importantly: how to apply the techniques -- on skirts and sleeves, pockets and jackets, evening gowns, and more. Gorgeous photos, clear illustrations, and concise language combine to make this the most complete couture-sewing course available"--Provided by publisher.
