Happy Friday! I hope everyone has had a great week. Are you ready for the weekend? Well, to kick off the weekend festivities, we’re offering another chance to win a great prize! This week’s prize is a revised and updated edition of Couture Sewing Techniques by Claire B. Shaeffer.
From the art of hand sewing to mastering edge finishes, from classic closures to shaping a garment for a perfect fit, fashion historian Claire B. Shaeffer teaches readers all the basics — and more importantly: how to apply the techniques — on skirts and sleeves, pockets and jackets, evening gowns, and more.
All you have to do to enter to win this great prize is answer the following question in the comments section below:
“How often do you use couture techniques in your sewing?”
The specialty shaping and hand sewing often found in couture garments add a special element that aren’t often found in ready-to-wear today. Though I’ll admit, when I’m stitching up a garment, it’s usually the quicker the better. Don’t worry if you don’t use couture techniques, just comment below and you’ll still be entered to win the prize!
The winner will be announced on Monday!
