The well-tailored jacket, always in style, is one of the most challenging, popular, and satisfying sewing projects. "Tailoring" is the classic guide to the required techniques. Step-by-step instructions and close-up photographs help hobby sewers get professional results. "Tailoring" covers all three tailoring methods (custom or hand, machine, and fusible) and the complete process from fabric selection to finishing touches. There are detailed instructions on adjusting the pattern for proper fit, which is critical for good results. Tailoring is all about impeccable details, and "Tailoring" shows how to achieve them, from the roll of the collar to a perfect pocket.
