Newest Sewing Book

THE CUSTOM LOOK
 
1973




My newest addition to my sewing books, but this one looks like it could have been published in 2013.
 
The styles look so current, the sewing techniques so detailed I can't wait to use it.   There are whole sections on couturier fittings.
 
 
Some of the illustrations are lovely.
 
 
I'd wear this dress!
 
 
 
 
 
Looks at their hair--looks like 2013 styles.

I'm a hugh fan of Project Runway and so inspired by what the designers can envision and create.

Ann, I loved this post!
Probably partly, because I too am a big fan of Project Runway and Fashion Star.
What a great find this book is, the illustrations are fabulous and inspiring. The 70"s have been a hot look here in California.
Thank you for sharing the fun!

Some things are timeless, like advice on picking prints and fittings.
