15.2 Make it Work: Hit the runway with the January fashion shows: Mode à Paris, Milan Fashion Week, São Paulo Fashion Week and Germany's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week
Read TWO books that fit the following options. You MAY use the same option twice.

A. ONE book with a type of fabric or dressmaking/tailoring trim (a decorative or functional element applied to the garment), or a sewing need: silk, satin, corduroy, denim, leather, lace, button, bead, rhinestone, fringe, pattern, thread, needle, etc. in the title or subtitle. Plurals, possessives, and variations (unbuttoned, lacemaker, silken) work.

B. ONE book with a cover that’s “all about the dress” These lists may help- Dresses to Die For! Women in White Be careful with lists- not every book on a GR list may work. The cover should highlight the dress.
Required: If you choose option B, please include a link to the title or cover (preferred) when you post.

I don't think that one has quite enough dress, sorry.

Either would work


chucklesthescot I'm clutching at straws here but figured I'd ask anyway about 'thread' and 'emerald' for part A?

Yeah I thought so! I think I might need to give this one a miss as urban fantasy and horror don't tend to have clothing related titles!

Since this has come up before (post 8) I'll open up the task to allow dressmaking or tailoring needs- patterns, needle, thread, etc

No problem- I've updated the task description. Adding notions makes sense.

I don't know if you've read it, and I don't know how "horror" it is, but I was thinking of using Button, Button: Uncanny Stories.
