From cushions to cradle blankets, from kids' clothes to a kimono, this wide-ranging reference by the author of last season's Embroidery offers all the techniques needed to hand- or machine-sew clothing and home accessories.The designs in this wonderfully practical guide showcase a diversity and richness of material, forms, textures, and colors, and teach a range of couture skills, from the simplest to near-professional level. Comprehensive, detailed sections deal with supplies and fabrics, stitching points and buttonholes, assembling basic seams, stitching in the round, smocking, adding linings, and putting in fasteners and zippers. There's advice on dealing with a variety of fabrics, and projects that work with mesh (a jersey shawl), velour (a jacket), braiding (a curtain loop), and more.
