This instructional sewing video was developed to answer requests from Threads readers for a behind-the-scenes look at how professionals construct fine clothing worthy of designer labels.

Threads editors along with nationally recognized sewing maven Louise Cutting demonstrate the timeless techniques and attention to detail that define well-sewn clothing.

This informative video reveals clever designer tips and little-known industry techniques.

Now you can see how pros overcome the common problems the home sewer encounters, including how to sew:
  • A no-stitch, interfaced hem that's fast, neat, and ideal for pants, skirts, and tailored jackets
  • Balanced darts that correct two problems: dimples at the tip of a dart and unbalanced vertical "fisheye" darts
  • The perfect collar that eliminates bulky seams at the center-front edges and improves roll and shaping at the neck
  • Mitered corners with no unsightly puckers and edges that are clean and in position
  • Designer facings that remove bulk and improve the way a garment drapes, creating a smooth, clean line

And there's so much more. You'll improve all your skills as you learn the ins-and-outs of French bias binding, clipping curves to produce graded seam allowances, and a mitering method that's key to sewing neat, flat, sharp corners.

This video is your guide to mastering those all-important tailoring touches that will enhance every garment you sew.

Louise Cutting is an accomplished designer, sewing instructor, and creator of Cutting Line Designs Pattern Company.

great value Review by marsh

I got both dvd downloads and definitely recommend. Camera angle is clear and pulls in tight when needed. Some of the material covered that I found helpful was Louise's very unique method of drafting & sewing a collar, dart molding and carefully clipped curves section. Presentation is enjoyable to watch. I had a little trouble downloading so it took me several tries. Itunes is required to actually play the video so just when I thought I was getting close, I had to download Itunes. I know. I'm probably the only person who didn't have Itunes. :)
