"This book takes the mystery out of couture techniques which some dressmakers assume are either difficult, or only for professional fashion designers. The Dressmaker's Handbook shows that these skills can easily be acquired, with clear instructions in simple, step-by-step stages." Sew Today (Feb 2011)
