This title teaches the home seamstress how to make 5 classic garments for both men and women. It shows how to take proper measurements & make common adjustments as well as the basic order of construction for each garment. What are the building blocks of a great wardrobe? For men the shirt and trousers. For women the blouse, skirt, dress and trousers. "The Illustrated Guide to Sewing: Garment Construction" will teach the home seamstress how to make them all, as well as learn how to design and sew garments that flatter their figure and reflect their personal style. From learning how to take proper measurements and make a muslin, to fitting and making common adjustments, the basic order of construction for each garment, such as fitting the bodice before attaching sleeves, is covered. Detailed chapters on elements; sleeves, collars, waistbands, hems and more provide valuable insight on how each piece is created and joined to the whole. This is a perfect book for those who want to make their own clothing for style, fit or just for fun.
