Linen and cotton are two classic fabrics that are always in style. This second book in the Focus on Fabric series, Linen and Cotton, is the essential sewing room reference for working with these easy-to-wear fabrics. It includes not only sewing techniques, but tips on selecting the right patterns and equipment, preparing and caring for the fabric before and after sewing, and construction techniques. These well-behaved fabrics are the perfect place to try new or complex techniques with confidence. Rarely taught classic couture methods are explained in detail. In one concise volume, sewers can find information on weaves, treatments, finishes, and specialty details like godets, pin tucks, and piping. A gallery of beautiful garments will serve as inspiration to take sewing skills to new heights. With the help of these professional techniques, linen and cotton garments will turn out like expensive ready-to-wear.
