Sewing Techniques for Theatre: An Essential Guide for Beginners distils the intimidating art of sewing down into simple, quick, and effective lessons to prepare readers for an entry level position in a costume shop. The lessons follow an hour-by-hour structure, offering detailed instructions to creating eleven sewing samples, a scrub shirt, and a tote bag. Imbedded in the projects’ directions are lecture materials on safety, irons, fabric, and patterns. With a wealth of hands-on exercises, review questions, photographs, and step-by-step instructions to compiling a diversified portfolio, this guide teaches aspiring costume designers about the culture and machinery of the costume shop, and equips them with the necessary skills to begin their career as members of a costume shop team.
