Sew Grateful: Tailored Jacket CD Giveaway

Readers, thank you - I reached another milestone - 300 followers in Google Friend Connect! I am so grateful for your interest and participation here, and the Sew Grateful Week, hosted by fabulous Debi, is just in time! I decided to join it and here is my first contribution: a giveaway


Tailored Jacket:
The Tailoring Techniques of Kenneth D. King

Tailored Jacket is an e-book documenting the process of creating a tailored jacket, from the cutting out to the finishing. With over 300 photos illustrating techniques in detail, the book covers among others
  • Materials and tools
  • Patternmaking to create the linings, facings, and other corollary pieces so that all pieces fit together perfectly
  • Interlinings
  • Complete construction of the garment, with "sidebars" at different points in the process. For example:
  • The perfect way to ease a sleeve cap
  • Constructing the notch lapel, as well as the shawl lapel.
  • Handling uneven shoulders
  • Constructing the lining, including installing the hidden lining pocket and piping
Thank you, Debi, for this great idea! Finally, thanks to my family for keeping up with hours of talk about couture sewing and my blog, listening to the stories about my fellow sewers and designers, living miles away but being present in my daily life for more than a year. Thank you, ladies (and gentlemen, of course) of Burdastyle, SewWeekly, PatternReview, and the Stitchers' Guild for welcoming me in your supportive and inspiring communities!


 I am always happy to see new subscribers, or followers, but it is not a pre-requisite! So, good luck, everyone! And, of course, I would love to hear your comments - just share what are you Sew Grateful for!

  9. Thank you for the chance to win, I am certain will be a very informative CD!

    Thanks for your heads up about Susan Khalje's Craftsy lessons, I am learning so much from her videos already. I just need the pattern to come soon!

    I'm grateful for my love of hand stitching. It sure is coming in handy now when doing all this couture techniques, in fact for regular garment sewing too.

  19. Thank you so much for the giveaway. I'm planning on making a pea coat this year (my first attempt at a coat) from a very cool 70s pattern! I think this book would be an ideal 'tutor' for me as I think that all the techniques would apply to jacket or coat. I know it would be extremely useful so it would be just lovely to win this book. Thank you.
