I have made a few skirts and some blouses. I am currently working on a casual men's shirt for my brother. What I really would like to attempt is sewing/fitting a pair of slacks. This book looks really interesting I wouldn't mind trying sewing a few more skirts.
Oh this is what I need. I am a beginner-intermediate sewer and I am always looking for things to learn and sew. This looks like a great instructional book.
Historically France and other parts of Europe has been the center of fashion for years. You have many different cultures and designers and Europeans are more laid back and tend to be trendier that "US" Americans are more cautious about adopting new styles. That's my take on this question.
I love my serger it makes finishing quick and neat. I would like to learn what else I could do with my machine. I am eyeing a new machine that has cover stitch abilities. ;-)
Very difficult to say but I do like the looks of Armani and Ralph Lauren...I like the classic look. Historically I would have to say Christian Dior.
I just adore her blog and admire her work....I'm such a fan. She provides not only inspiration but also wonderful sewing guidance. I look forward to using her book. It would be great to get a complimentary copy from Threads, but if not I still will purchase the book because I can only imagine how good it must be. I'm very excited.
Oh my! If there is anything I need, it certainly is this DVD or more specifically I have a brand new serger sitting in the corner and I don't know what to do with it...the only thing I have done is two thread overcasting...I would love to find more uses for this expensive item....
I make my own liquid starch from water and boxed cornstarch (it's all natural). I use it mainly for ironing my husband's white dress shirts (gives a nice crisp finish). But I also use it from a spray bottle on seam edges of fabrics that ravel easily or just need a little stabilizing. Works great.
I will use this new iron for making Bags, Bags, Bags...My current interest is in sewing bags, totes, purses of all kinds ...and I do a lot of pressing...thank you for the chance for this giveaway.
Oh my! This looks like a wonderful book. I would love to make this a part of my sewing and design library and get some great ideas for my next project.
I would love to be able to drape my daughter's wedding dress...how cool would that be!
Just been learning about silk screening and I have been reviewing some books on embellishment techniques. This book looks quite interesting and something I am ready to try. Sew. . . what's next. . .?
I have watched a few of the DVDs from Threads and they are great. I always enjoy learning from the Masters. It's one thing to read about a technique, but much better when you see it done. Kind of like the concept "A picture is worth a thousand words. . ." Thanks for this Give Away opportunity.
I think that all fashion is interesting. I had an instructor who said that there is nothing new to create in fashion and that it has all been done before. Yes a sleeve is a sleeve, skirt a skirt, pants are pants, but I think the great thing that one can see in this fine book is that with these basic elements there is an infinite combination of clothing that can be created by varying colors, fabrics, and the length and widths of these basic elements of sleeves, skirts and pants. I would be very pleased to be the new owner of “The Chronicle of Western Fashion” and use this book to create my infinite looks.
