9781577664086: Basic Sewing for Costume Construction: A Handbook

Backed by decades of testing by the author, this easy-to-follow guide presents the fundamentals of sewing. Its clearly laid-out projects cover hand stitching, hand sewn fasteners, and seams, all while teaching a simplified approach to pattern making. Readers learn to translate their body measurements into patterns for garments of their own design. They follow the steps from developing a pattern, to preparing a fitting muslin, to creating a finished garment. Each project builds on the previous one to develop a full understanding of the costume construction process.

"Nice improvement on the First Edition. The drawstring bag project was a good idea. All in all, an excellent workbook." --Don DiFonso, Point Park University

"I love that the book is in binder format so pages are easy to remove, use, and put back in. It's a wonderful step-by-step process that has been boiled down and simplified for beginning students." --Suzanne Mann, Hartnell College
