    i was reading this book a while back --it's basically on how to form sculpture with sewing, the way you fold it and iron it and also adding padding.. I don't think it's much as any different to tailoring.

    Get thee to the Fashion Incubator website where there are any number of tutorials that will be applicable. If you buy the book and join the forum for the site, you may even find yourself conversing with a whole variety of people who do it.
