    Couture is an attitude. It's a way of thinking about sewing. In this book by Roberta Carr couture is available to everyone with an interest in quality, style and individuality. Théâtre de la Mode tells the story of how miniature mannequins rescued Haute Couture. Liberation in the fall of 1944 after four years of foreign Occupation found Paris surviving on minimal resources. Hoping to make a statement to the world that Paris was still the center of fashion, couturiers, jewelers, milliners, hairdressers, and theatre designers joined together to present the Théâtre de la Mode. These two books together offer a wealth of fashion history and couture techniques. This special $19.95 price is good through May 11th, 2017. Regular price $59.90.

    Professional custom couture seamstress Marla Kazell, who was our technical advisor on the Couture book says "Roberta taught me that in a couture garment, the details are important—not just in the finished appearance, but in every choice and decision made along the way. That's what makes each garment one of a kind. The lessons and techniques I learned from Bobbie play a part in every garment I sew and every class I teach."
