Vintage Couture Sewing Techniques

Vintage Couture Sewing Techniques

Over time, we will publish a collection of  vintage couture sewing techniques and tutorials from world-famous designers as well as other great bloggers with professional sewers and dressmakers like myself. Look for our section on pattern drafting and draping too.
In my opinion no matter how successful a sewer you may be, you can from others to make your work easier and less cumbersome.
If you have never tried or have tried unsuccessfully to make your own clothes or even to fine-tuned your couture finishing skills this section of the blog offers you the whole story of garment construction from the very basic to the most effective way to tailor a jacket or line a coat or even drape or make your own patterns.
Welcome aboard and please let me know of there’s a topic you’d like to know more about.
