Threads magazine - 159 – Feb./Mar. 2012

Sewing a couture garment is a journey, and while the finished piece is certainly a worthwhile “destination,” the steps you take to get there can be equally enjoyable.

Click on the “View PDF” button below to view Susan Khalje’s  couture construction article (from Threads issue #159) which walks you through putting a garment together with couture methods that are sturdy, sensible, and lovely to look at.
