It came today! I pre-ordered in April and now it’s here. My review of this book is short: buy it. You won’t be sorry.
I have briefly flipped through the book and it’s all I’ve dreamed it would be and much more.
You know how you don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone? Well, ever since I first wadded through DPC’s Shirtmaking book, complaining the whole way over the disorganization of it, I’ve settle down to treasure all the scattered bits and pieces and great ideas and explanations. And I’ve missed his mind!
So just for starters I am getting ready to cut out a new pattern and was getting ready to add a cut on fly to the pattern. I was wondering if there were any secrets or rationale I should know before I do my changes and the first page that opened in the new book was this:
Of course everything I know about tailoring and dressmaking has come from pattern instructions, my Mom, research or my teachers and the concept of folding a zipper tape in making the fly had just never come up. So, I am a happy camper, I’ve got some new thoughts to think 🙂
