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.

The article below "Stitch to Stage" was excellent. It clearly explained the reason why couture is so expensive and only a few rich folks in the world can afford this type of clothing. It tells you how many hours it takes to construct a suit, blouse, etc.

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.
