Description

Description:

Some of the great short cuts you will find here: super-fast, hassle-free seams with all the advantages of French seams, but not the effort; quick-and-easy ways of reducing fullness, marking a hem, or making a rolled one; tips on handling tricky fabrics; finishing touches, many of them that look difficult, but aren't--even ways in which to press without using an iron!

Less ambitious? This comprehensive manual is for you, too! It shows better and easier ways to handle almost every aspect of sewing! More than 800 step-by-step drawings make the book invaluable to any home sewer, no matter what level of expertise and even a beginner can graduate from sewing on buttons to elaborate tailoring.
