Couture Skirt book table of contents

This couture sewing book is really a step-by-step guide on how to make a couture skirt worthy of Chanel. Just so you know, the instructions are for making a skirt designed by Clair Shaeffer based on her knowledge of Chanel skirts and you will need to purchase a basic straight skirt pattern or draft one yourself. There are no instructions about pattern drafting or alterations.

The author goes over haute couture techniques in detail such as quilting, waistband, hemming, zipper and others. If you always wanted to make a Chanel-style skirt but were afraid to experiment with expensive tweed, this book and the accompanying DVD will take your hand and lead you from the very beginning to the finished project and you will also get some ideas for your future Chanel-style skirts.
