Integrating text, photographs, and a companion DVD, Tailoring Techniques for Fashion covers traditional and contemporary design and construction methods for tailored garments from ready-to-wear to couture details. Live demonstrations and hundreds of photographs illustrate step-by-step instructions for constructing a tailored skirt, trousers, jacket, and design details using traditional, fusible, machine, and massproduction methods. A history of the tailoring profession and a survey of contemporary tailoring business practices place these techniques in a professional context.
