Our customer reviews
I purchased Basics With Claire Shaeffer alongside Couture Sewing Techniques, and while the information overlaps I've found both are very useful resources. I'm a self taught sewer, so I have found her approach incredibly useful in focusing and improving how I make clothes, as well as providing an aspirational goal for the more advanced techniques used in beautifully finishing garments. Claire Shaeffer is very easy to listen to and her demonstrations are clear and detailed.show moreby Unknown
