This video demonstrates the techniques described in chapter 7 of Coffin's book "Shirtmaking." The content of the other chapters of the book are not covered, and the chapter 7 techniques would be difficult to duplicate just by looking at this video, so it is best to use it as a supplement to the book. Some things described in the book are made clearer by seeing the demonstrations in the video. The techniques demonstrated are for flat-felled seams (using the felling foot), the baby-hemmed seam (using the hemming foot), and the construction of collars and sleeve plackets, along with a few other things. The quality of the video is adequate but not Hollywood level. The sound level fluctuates a bit, and Mr. Coffin's hairstyle changes randomly; there is also a disappearing/reappearing zit on his right cheek, as well as a strange fork in his left eyebrow that shows up from time to time, indicating the lack of a continuity person during shooting. There are a few primitive but helpful computer animations of the key stitches. Overall I would recommend this for anyone who is using the book as a guide to make shirts.

I have owned this video and the accompanying book for two years and have found them invaluable. It is great to be able to see the techniques in David's book demonstrated on the video. David is an excellent presenter and his construction techniques produce fantastic results.

This video is meant for a more experienced sew-er. This video is very informative and professional, as it instructs you how to make well-tailored men shirts.
Especially helpful for arm seam, sleeves, collars, plackets and cuffs.
