Re: DVD GIVEAWAY: Industry Insider Techniques with Louise Cutting Volumes 1-4

I would love to have this DVD set because it would help me fit my tricky figure and to refine my techniques.

Re: Book Giveaway: Seventeenth-Century Women's Dress Patterns

I would love to have a copy of this book. I've sewn since I was very young, and have always been interested in historical clothing. I own several "antique" clothing items, one of which I occasionally wore as an underweight teenager while demonstrating spinning (by hand and by wheel). As I am now much older and the exact opposite of underweight, I only treaure and carefully store my lovely pieces. I still marvel at the complicated ruching and other techniques used.

I hve done some costuming for myself and my family (historical and fantasy) and I find that the more I learn about construction, the better my outcomes. Whoever receives this book will certainly get a gem!
