  • TWO-BOOK COMBO SALE: Couture: The Art of Fine Sewing Théâtre de la Mode: Fashion Dolls — The Survival of Haute Couture

    Save $39.95 when you order these two books on the the history and techniques of couture — a 67% savings!

    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.

    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."

  • The McCall's 7628 Dottie U Back Top and Dress is a play on a classic woven top and shift dress, fitted through the bust but slightly A-line through the waist and hips. The top has a collar band extending to the low U shaped back, exposing only the most flattering part! The optional sleeves could be beautiful if done in a sheer fabric, or this would be really beautiful in classic white shirting with some lycra. e vertical and horizontal bust darts can be used for shaping, made deeper if you want a closer fit or left out all together for a relaxed fit.
    The dress’s shaped front waist seam was inspired by a vintage lingerie slip I have and would show up beautifully in a solid color fabric. The low back and front neck is self faced. Preparing for sewing is just as important to fit as is good sewing! Make sure to interface your neckbands and facings with PerfectFuse Light, this way your back neck wont stretch out while you are sewing. You can also use stay tape stitched in the seams for extra insurance!
