Abstract:

The subject is couture--not complex. It's about concepts--how to approach a technique, or a way of accomplishing a particular look. It's a "how-to" book, but it's a "how-to-think" book as well. ... With each technique it gives the reasons why, the alternatives, when to use each one and the results to expect. ... Seamstresses create beautiful clothing by analyzing problems and choosing from alternative techniques, and then selecting the best solutions to create their version of perfection.--Page 5.
