It covers, in great detail, the full spectrum of fabric manipulation techniques from simple gathering and pleating to complex structural forms that combine multiple elements into works of textile art. Honestly, it blew my mind! She goes on to explain that she wanted to present the techniques independently of their potential applications so that the reader can take the ideas and run with them. I love this idea! All the examples are presented on a square of unbleached muslin with pinked edges.

The Art of Manipulating Fabric

No garments, no home decor pieces, no quilts, nothing. Just amazingly manipulated pieces of muslin that you can transform into anything your little heart desires. She writes about the muslin:. Its bland color proved exceptionally receptive to the light and shadow of black-and-white photography. This book has all my favorite elements of a sewing book: Modern sewing books are full of these, and it drives me crazy.

I want technical instruction! There are plenty of photographs in this book though, and they are phenomenal teaching tools. If it is in the instructions, there is a photo. No omissions, no confusion.

I can only imagine how long it took her to wash, iron, cut, and sew all the samples. In the foreword, editor Robbie Fanning describes her dedication in sample-sewing:.

Always, I would be staggered at the workmanship and the possibilities. Who but Colette could have made darts into works of art? I began to drag other people into the meetings, merely for the pleasure of watching their faces as she pulled out some samples.

At one point someone at Chilton [Book Company] asked her to ship her samples to Philadelphia for a meeting. Above you can see the introductory instructions for creating flounces which you might use for a peplum, for example.

The line drawings in the instructions are exceptionally clear and helpful, and I found them to be remarkably true-to-life. As in, I wonder if Colette actually sewed a fabric sample and then precisely drew how the fabric behaved. And yes, she drew all the line drawings herself! Who knew you could do such amazing things with a simple ruffle?!?!?

Or, you could read this book like a novel like I did, drooling with every page turn. You know, just saying. Where could I apply this technique — maybe along the hem of a summer skirt?

As a brooch for a blazer? On a purse? So many possibilities! I can imagine making a boxy summer top covered in these tucks from shoulder to hem.

One by one. This sounds amazingly labor-intensive and amazingly awesome. Am I ambitious enough to give it a try?? Probably not! I had never even heard of half of these!

Imagine stuffing your pipe organ pleats with sewing notions. Need an extra button? Just reach into the built-in storage cubby in your drapes, LOL!If your order has a status of "packed" or "shipped" we will not be able to guarantee any change in shipping details. Agree on the objectionable fluff in some of the newer sewing books. Just reach into the built-in storage cubby in your drapes, LOL!

Review: Those who knit, crochet, or embroider have long had sources to which to turn for in-depth instructions on specific stitches and stitch combinations. Filled with hundreds of diagrams and crisp black-and-white photos, this volume explains in detail how to achieve a tremendous range of three-dimensional fabric effects.

Eventually, I bought it. Yes, Amazon is cheaper, but nothing beats the experience of perusing your local bookstore and checking out the books in person — just like with fabric shopping! All samples which are presented in black-and-white photography were made from unbleached muslin. For VHS: barely detectable distortion or very few fuzzy or snowy frames.
