9781577667551: Basic Sewing for Costume Construction: A Handbook, Second Edition

All students of costuming need to learn basic sewing techniques to build costumes for theatrical performance. Basic Sewing for Costume Construction teaches just those fundamentals. Cunningham brings decades of classroom experience as she guides readers with clearly laid-out projects covering hand stitching, fasteners, pinning, sewing, and seams. Additional material on measurement, fabric selection, and use of commercial patterns, as well as three complete construction projects, round out the Second Edition. Each project builds on the previous one to develop a full understanding of the costume construction process.

Also by Rebecca Cunningham and available from Waveland Press: The Magic Garment: Principles of Costume Design, Second Edition (ISBN 9781577666134).

Review:

"The revisions in the second edition of Basic Sewing for Costume Construction are well thought out and beneficial to the costume practitioner. Cunningham has taken a well-done workbook and made it even more so." --Theatre Design & Technology

"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
