I would love to learn techniques that would allow me to construct a garment that is unique and perfectly finished.

Would love a copy to keep in my sewing desk ready to use when needed or when I need to take a break from the machines. Trying to get garments to fit correctly taking into account braces, height, etc. Although I have been sewing for almost 50 years, I would really like to learn more about lining garments.

Couture Sewing Techniques by Claire B. Shaeffer

I owned the older version of this book, and not realizing it was the same one I purchased this again. This book is definitively on my wish list! Mine always end up hanging too low or pulling.

Couture has been on its way out since before I was born, but it’s comforting to see that people still cling to the old art and insist on keeping high quality clothes as art alive. Looking forward to being selected as ‘the winner!

No matter how I try mine always seem to be a bit awkward. This looks like an awesome book! I’ve been sewing for shaeffsr and years and am still very interested in all the best techniques for incorporating small embellishments such as fine piping, well-placed seams, and pockets but not patch pockets! Unlike many other sewing books, which place the emphasis on speed, here the focus vlaire on technique.


This book sounds like it would take me to sewinng next level and provide the instruction for those techniques that I don’t often use.

I would be absolutely ecstatic to have such an amazing book! I love Adrian and Armani.

The ehaeffer of the couture sewing techniques are clear and well drawn. Winning this wonderful book would be a special treat. I recently did one a Claire Shaeffer’s jacket patterns a found her technique for putting in a lapel collar using the fel stitch resulted in a wonderful collar.

I also highlighted more passages than I did in college.

I don’t know enough about couture techniques to know what I want to learn more about, which is why I hy love to own the book! I continue to be fascinated by how to manipulate fabric successfully for tailored looks using techniques such as pin tucking and pleating.

Most interested in patternmaking. I love Threads way of teaching, by print and pictures. I’ve resonantly been diagnosed as disabled.
