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

Would love to learn how to do a finely turned lapel. No matter how I try mine always seem to be a bit awkward. Perhaps its the materials or maybe something I'm doing wrong in the hand-stitching but it's just not right.

Re: Book Giveaway: "THE VICTORIAN TAILOR" by Jason Maclochlainn

How fascinating! I've often wondered when looking at period garments how they were constructed but as most displays are "no touchy, no feely" it's kind of difficult to discern.

Re: Book Giveaway: "1,000 Clever Sewing Shortcuts & Tips"

May not seem like much but it's very important... Don't sew when you're really really angry! Not only will simple sewing problems suddenly be insurmountable mountains but it could also lead you to not really pay attention to what you're doing. I need only look at the scar on my left thumb where I sewed through it to be reminded!
Learned while working on a dress to wear to Homecoming when in high school, more years back than should be legal! :-)
