About this item

Sewing is the process of constructing a garment either by hand or using a sewing machine. Knowing how to sew will make you a better designer, as it will expose you to what can and can't be accomplished. Designers are often inspired by the creative possibilities of sewing techniques.In this book you will start by learning the basics: how to choose tools; how to choose and use your thread; basic pressing techniques; and how to choose and use appropriate interfacings and linings. Basic techniques include seam and hem finishes, how to sew buttons and buttonholes, how to work with knit fabrics and, finally, finishing details including bindings and spaghetti straps, tailored pockets and zippers. Each lesson in the book is illustrated in meticulous detail in a series of step-by-step photographs accompanied by photos from the catwalk. Videos to accompany this book are available at www.universityoffashion.com.
