Happy Friday everyone and welcome to another edition of Freebie Friday! If you're just joining us, here's how it works:
- Every Friday (unless it's an ultra-busy day at Sew Daily HQ and we forget) we post a blog with something from our office stash to give away. Items range from books to sewing patterns to notions and supplies.
- If the item is something you want to win, you leave a comment on the Freebie Friday blog post.
- Sometime early the next week (usually Monday or Tuesday), we pick a random winner from the comments. You can continue commenting (only one comment per person, please) until you see a comment from us annoucing the winner.
Easy peasy! :)
This week we're giving away a copy of The Dressmaker's Handbook of Couture Sewing Techniques by Lynda Maynard.
Packed with professional techniques and tips, The Dressmaker's Handbook of Couture Sewing Techniques takes the mystery out of the sewing and finishing techniques that many dressmakers assume are either extremely difficult or are only for professional fashion designers.
Fashion designer and expert sewist Lynda Maynard tackles each professional technique with clear instructions in simple step-by-step stages. Once these skills are understood, sewists will embrace their dressmaking projects with more confidence and the ability to create chic, refined looks. The Dressmaker's Handbook of Couture Sewing Techniques unlocks the door to stunning results with better shaping, simpler construction methods, and professional finishing touches. Lynda also explains several seemingly difficult "secrets," from making bindings and finishing for hems, armholes, and necklines to underpinnings and structuring techniques. Plus, she teaches how to master finishing touches from textured stitches to couching and appliqué. A complete guide to the fabrics suited to each technique and inspirational fashion photography are also included.
