The well-tailored jacket, always in style, is one of the most challenging, popular, and satisfying sewing projects. Tailoring is the classic guide to the required techniques. Step-by-step instructions and close-up photographs help hobby sewers get professional results. Tailoring covers all three tailoring methods (custom or hand, machine, and fusible) and the complete process from fabric selection to finishing touches. There are detailed instructions on adjusting the pattern for proper fit, which is critical for good results. Tailoring is all about impeccable details, and Tailoring shows how to achieve them, from the roll of the collar to a perfect pocket.

I'm working my way through a tailored jacket and have found this book to be an excellent resource. I may have to steal it from the library.

This is a reissue of the old Singer Reference Library volume by the same title. It remains a good reference, and it is worth owning a copy.
