Contents: 1 X 144 Page Paperback With 400 Colour Illustrations Main Author: Alice Prier Author Bio - Alice Prier is a sewing pattern guru with over 30 years’ experience working in fashion design and education. She is responsible for devising and teaching all of the pattern cutting classes at Ray Stitch (raystitch.co.uk), a fashionable North London-based sewing shop in the UK (social media followers: Twitter 3.5k; Facebook 3.3k; Pinterest 2.4k; Instagram 2k). Prier loves inspiring home sewers to have the confidence to make their own patterns, which in her mind is the most interesting and creative part of dressmaking. She also tutors professional pattern cutters at Fashion Capital in Haringey (Twitter 4k; Facebook 1.5k), which manufactures clothes for ASOS, John Lewis, and Marks & Spencer. After a 10-year career working in theater set- and costume-design, in 1989 Prier founded her own company— Alice & Co (aliceandco.co.uk)—making made-to-measure clothes for city women. Alice also blogs about her travels and fashion exploits at where2wearit.com. Secondary Author: Lilia Prier Tisdall Bio Lilia Prier Tisdall is a Costume Mounting Specialist at the Victoria and Albert Museum, a freelance writer and theater reviewer (liliapt.tumblr.com). Daughter of pattern making expert Alice Prier, Lilia has helped to curate many of the museum’s most prestigious exhibitions—Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, Hollywood Costume, and Club to Catwalk—and she also writes for their blog (vam.ac.uk/blog/author/lilia-tisdall). Growing up in her mother’s house full of pins, the question "how can I make it?"always came before"where can I buy it?". It is an attitude that has stayed with her ever since.
