Since starting my Dressmakers series, I've been fascinated by haute couture seamstresses, since their work comes closest to that of early 19th century dressmakers: every stitch by hand, no paper patterns, expensive fabrics cut with an expert eye. Yes, today's high-level seamstresses work with modern tools as well as their trusty needles, pins, and scissors—as you'll see in the embroidery work in this Chanel documentary. But even with the advanced technology, the work is astounding.
Don't know about you, but I couldn't stop with one episode.
