Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: A Field Guide to Fabric Design

I have so many caftan patterns, and would love to have the perfect fabric to use. I am petite, and many bold prints are lovely, but too much for my frame. What fun to start with a fabric perfect for me!

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: "The Art of Fashion Draping" by Connie Amaden-Crawford

I'd love to drape a jacket with a waterfall lapel.

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

What a generous giveaway! I love the idea of being able to learn new techniques, and to review old ones. I live in a rural area and do not have access to quality garment instruction except online. These DVDs would be so welcome in my sewing room.
