Home sewers have their choice of many guides to clothing construction, but this title is unique because it focuses on fab rics and materials used to make garments. The fiber content of leathers, synthetic suedes, vinyls, fur, feathers, natural fab rics, and man-made fabrics are all de tailed. The section on fabric structure in cludes woven, knit, and stretch-woven fabrics, while that on surface characteris tics ranges from transparent and napped fabrics to felt, reversible, and quilted fab rics and fabrics with designs. After a de scription of the distinctive properties of each textile, techniques for sewing with professional results are outlined, with special emphasis on seams, hems, edge finishes, closures, and hand stitching. A fabric and fiber dictionary, sewing clinic, glossary, and bibliography complete the work. Illustrations from the collections of international design houses are scattered throughout the text. This comprehensive fiber and fabric dictionary is for all public libraries.
