Fashion Sewing: Advanced Techniques guides the reader through a range of intermediate and advanced skills, such as tailoring, sewing with knits, inserting linings and facings and how to sew a wide range of design variations for collars, pockets and sleeves. The detailed step-by-step instructions are easy to follow, with clear accompanying illustrations.

This comprehensive guide is an ideal accompaniment to the first book in the series, Fashion Sewing: Introductory Techniques, but it will also enable those with little sewing experience to master their fashion sewing skills and create beautiful, professional-looking garments.
