Fine Embellishment Techniques: Classic Details for Today's Clothing
Author: Jane Conlon
You don't have to be an expert to add embellishment techniques from the 1920's, 30's and 40's to your wardrobe. Discover the possibilities when you add threadwork, beading, trims, piping and more to garments. These projects are elegant and sophisticated and especially appealing to those who like glamour but not glitz.
Like knitters, today's sewers welcome ideas for embellishments to push their sewn garments beyond the boundaries of the ready-to-wear. The topic has yet to be covered fully in sewing books--until now. Conlon, a frequent contributor to Threads magazine, divides embellishment techniques into five major types: beading, threadwork, trims, applique, and bindings/pipings. Separate chapters devoted to each of these techniques include information on choosing appropriate tools and materials, step-by-step directions, and ideas for using the embellishment in a garment. Instructions are crystal clear, and the whole is beautifully organized and illustrated. Highly recommended for sewing collections. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
