Thanks to her unique insider-expertise in the couture industry, Claire Shaeffer offers home sewers the techniques and knowledge to create garments with true designer professionalism. This book/DVD set is the second book on chanel and a companion to The Couture Cardigan Jacket. It contains the information and design-atelier secrets that have made Shaeffer's in-person classes smash hit sellouts.
