Slowly, very slowly my project is moving forward. I have transferred all changes to the paper pattern pieces. I decided to keep my muslin so I could always try it on and make needed changes. I still will need to check the button position for example.
And then in the end my long awaiting book has arrived – Couture Sewing – The Couture Cardigan Jacket by Claire Shaeffer!
I am not disappointed with the content. Those of you who already have this book for sure agree with me. The book describes all steps to create the French (Chanel-like) jacket in clear and comprehensive way – from a fabric choice to finishing and trims. All phases are enriched with detailed pictures.
And I should not forget the enclosed DVD! It is great to see Clair explaining the couture techniques leading to create a French/Chanel-like jacket. You just want to follow-up /make the jacket!
And something I was really, really hoping to find in this book was the description on how to make double buttonholes, which I am going to make in my jacket.
Claire Shaeffer has put together outstanding book – next in my sewing library – MUST HAVE in everyone sewing library.
