Learn how to apply a zipper, how to gather material at the waistband, how to hand embroider and more. From the beginning of the sewing process through the finishing touches, Knight leads the reader through all the necessary steps of creating beautiful handmade garments.

I just found the above book, "The Dressmaker's Technique Bible" on Amazon! I am new(ish) to the sewing world & I've had trouble making sense of all the steps & techniques that are used for dress patterns. Ordering this book right now. Excited 256 pages, spiral bound, & solid reviews. My goal is to have the skills and knowledge to create professional looking clothing for both my kids and myself. The Link to purchase the book (on Amazon) is below. I'm ordering a used copy for $6.90. All 3rd party books on Amazon have a $3.99 shipping fee. Not bad at all. :) I hope this is helpful to those that were looking for a download button thinking this was an eBook too download. Believe this is just a review. LINK TO PURCHASE = Link to book on Amazon (New or Used Options) - == F8&keywords=The%20Dressmaker%27s%20Technique%20Bib == le&qid=1389995735&ref_=sr_1_1&sr=8-1 Cheers & Happy Sewing!!

Sorry the link to the book above didn't hyperlink to click on. You can highlight the link and then copy and paste it into a new tab, of course. Happy New Year

All I see is option to, "SAVE PATTERN" for above The Dressmaker's Technique Bible. Is this just a review to purchase the eBook elsewhere?

I don't see a download button for - The Dressmaker's Technique Bible. Only, "Save Pattern" option. Is this just a review on the eBook??

I would love to have this book. No matter how long you have sewn. You can still learn that new thing everyday. Even if we knew it along the way.
