by Darlene Strader


Price : $19.95

          Please order from the author's website at Darlene's Clothing Alterations Book or at the newer website Dress Clothing Alterations.

          For clothing alterations professionals as well as anyone with sewing experience who wants to learn how to make every garment "tailor fitted".

          Author Darlene Strader has been a professional alterations seamstress for almost thirty years. During that time she has done alterations for top name department stores, managed the local alterations department for a national clothing chain, plus owned a leading alterations business for eleven years. Darlene's name is well known as offering the highest quality alterations.

          Alterations is a no-nonsense, no-gimmick book, and it is written specifically for being used while at your sewing machine. Line drawings were chosen over photographs for their ability to be better seen and understood. Every aspect of the book has been designed for your ease of use, from the comb binding (to lie flat on sewing tables), to graphics and font size. The book format is 8.5"x5.5", it has 114 single-sided pages, 100 graphics, detailed step by step instructions, and it is popular with in-store professionals as well as 'work at home' parents who operate their own alterations business. Originally printed in 1985, the first edition sold out within only two months. The current book is a new 2010 edition.
