I must agree with the previous reviewer. I have been sewing on a machine since junior high school. Believe me, that's been a mighty long time. In just one viewing of Claire's DVD, I learned so much. I love the idea of couture sewing. I do not have the time or all of the skills to make every garment in the couture manner, but I try to incorporate as many details as I can, e.g., I am trying my best to perfect my hand-worked buttonhole skills. Another bonus to Claire's excellent teaching skills is the opportunity to view the beautiful couture garments that she uses to illustrate various techniques. This set is a must-have for anyone who wants to add the couture touch to garments and feel a wonderful sense of accomplishment.

An excellent sewing aid for anyone who wants to give their garments a little extra sophistication. Review by Diana

I have to admit that even after sewing for 50 years, I didn't know the hand stitching techniques which Claire Schaeffer shows in such exquisite details.This is a sewing tool I'll return to again and again.
I loved the close-up look at some of Claire's couture collection.I would never have a chance to see garments by Chanel,Dior ,St.Laurent,etc.but I was able to live vicariously through Ms. Schaeffer.
Anyone wanting to improve their tailoring skills would benefit from this wonderful video.
