Description: Traditional tailoring is a fascinating craft, which has not changed for many centuries, however, the techniques are now known only by a few practising in the best couture ateliers and bespoke tailor's workrooms. Nothing feels quite so luxurious or sophisticated as bespoke clothes, but the tailoring skills they require are often seen to be shrouded in mystery and the clothes therefore only accessible to the rich and famous. This practical book reveals the trade secrets of couture tailoring and brings vintage couture tailoring within the reach of all.

Review: I don’t say this lightly, an absolutely amazing book. A step by step guide to making a jacket. Everything is explained so well and the phots are so clear and easy to follow. I would say, you should have some experience in making garments as it is quite advanced.

Review: A book purchased to leaf through for ideas to take forward for some clothing recycling sessions I put together locally. It holds a lot of traditional methods and good ways to accomplish a fine finish but I really don’t think it “suitable” (excuse the pun!) for younger people or novice sewers as the book makes some assumptions on the readers capability. A fine reference for improvers or theatrical costume designers. perhaps?
