More About Couture
You must run and purchase the January/February issue of Sew News Magazine. Its all about couture. There are several articles from couture hand sewing to couture fitting.

This article tells you how to identify if a garment is couture or expensive RTW
Eye on interfacing is excellent. All the interfacing listed in this article are my favorites
Sew News did a great job in explaining everything you need to know about couture in very simple language that a beginner sewer can understand. Claire Schaeffer does an excellent job with the article she wrote.
