Summary

Add a unique touch to your clothes with this inspirational guide to couture embroidery and embellishment, written by Jessica Pile, the Production Director at Hand & Lock.

Whether you’re interested in adding monogrammed initials to your snuggly bathrobe, stitching a flower on your favorite jacket, or adding sparkling beads to a new dress, this beautifully illustrated book shows you how. It features hand-drawn designs, catwalk photographs, and step-by-step guides, so it’s perfect for beginners looking to personalize their own clothes, as well as more experienced embroiderers who want to apply new techniques to different fabrics.
 
Jessica Pile offers an inspirational overview of the fashion industry, presenting examples of embroideries and embellishments by couturiers that include Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton, Hardy Amies, and Burberry. She demonstrates the basics of three main techniques—goldwork, tambour beading, and embroidery stitching—and provides do-it-yourself projects with advice on fabric, tools, and terminology.
