Re: Book Giveaway: Dressmaking: 200 Q&A

I would say always take your time and do a muslin first in fabric as close as possible to the final fabric you will use. And don't sew when you are tired; you are more prone to make silly mistakes. Also it is important to always PRESS as you sew to get a professional result.

I have been sewing for many years but always learn something new when I read Threads magazine. There are articles I go to again and again. It has definitely improved my level of sewing.

Re: Book and DVD Giveaway: Claire B. Shaeffer's "Couture Sewing: Tailoring Techniques"

I would love techniques on how to work with fabrics such as silk chiffon; specifically how to create a professional finish. I think sometimes it's a case of 'you don't know what you don't know' and any tips would be great.

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: "Couture Sewing Techniques" by Claire B. Shaeffer

I would love to learn any new couture techniques, but I think especially how to get perfect linings. I love hand stitching techniques as well.
