  1. This book sounds like a very useful addition to any dressmaker stash. How to alter necklines in particular is something I think I’d use a lot. Maybe I’ll treat myself in the new year.

  2. I found your blog from your Amazon reviews, which are really helpful. As someone who’s getting back into sewing after an extremely long hiatus, I’d find this book very useful and it would be a good reminder of all the techiques I’ve forgotten! Thanks for the chance to win.
