I still buy and buy, but a sewn wardrobe is beginning to materialize, yay! Here is to keeping that up!
While doing my Christmas shopping on Amazon last month, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to buy something for myself as well...
Yup, Vintage Couture Tailoring is now part of my library and I'm very happy about it. The book is chock-full of detailed photos and explanations on every step of making a tailored jacket. It has 4 pages and 13 photos on Ironing techniques alone! I'm in heaven... The focus is all on technique and not at all on design, so there are no other jackets than the one in the cover. The point hopefully is that once you learned the techniques you can apply them to any tailored jacket design you want.
And now, the exciting part: Amazon sent my order in two separate shipments and they mistakenly included a copy of the tailoring book with each shipment, so I now have two. I obviously don't need two copies so this is my very first giveaway!
I think only a handful of people read my blog, but just to be fair in case more than one person wants this book here's how we'll do it:
- Leave me a comment on this post saying you would like to win the book.
- On Friday February 8 at 10pm Amsterdam time I will run a random generator to select the winning comment.
- I'm happy to ship anywhere in the world, so don't be shy and let me hear you want that book!
