Future book buys

I just spent a night of delicious soup and dessert, laundry and perusing friend Jack's costume book collection. He has two books that are next on my buy list...

First: The Art of Fabric Manipulation by Colette Wolff

I've wanted this one for awhile. It's got all sorts of great instructions and illustrations for smocking, pleating, quilting, ruffles, tucking, stuffing, cording etc. It's great and I want it!

Second: Couture Sewing Techniques by Claire B. Shaeffer

It's exactly what it sounds like and has lots of illustrations and photos of garments.
