Review:

Dec 05 This is a handy book for those who enjoy creating smocked fabrics but need some help incorporating them into wearable garments. This super guide takes a step-by-step approach through the entire process from selecting appropriate fabrics to the finishing touches. The techniques section is particularly helpful with a complete photo guide to blocking, stabilising, positioning and cutting out a garment from smocked fabric. A number of heirloom sewing techniques are also included for inserting lace, and adding scalloped hems and piping. The construction section includes detailed instructions for assembling various styles of children's dress and covers assembling the bodice and skirt, adding collars or necklines, inserting sleeves, creating hems, appropriate fastenings, plus sashes and cummerbunds. Whilst the illustrations are based on classic designs, these techniques could easily be applied to any smocked garment. * SEWING WORLD * Dec 05 This is a handy book for those who enjoy creating smocked fabrics but need some help incorporating them into wearable garments.
