Where to learn tailoring:
I learned Ready-to-wear tailoring at Bunka Fashion College, Tokyo; then tried the traditional techniques by myself following another textbook.
- Bunka Fashion College textbooks (English version) available on Amazon, I think;
- If you can't find them, Couture Sewing Techniques by Claire B. Shaeffer is an amazing book to start investigating traditional women's tailoring.
