This semester I took Couture Techniques taught by Lynda Maynard, who is the author of The Dressmaker's Handbook of Couture Sewing Techniques: Essential Step-by-Step Techniques for Professional Results. It was a short course, and lecture only, but was filled with great techniques for finishing garments. The whole class was worth it for the reminders to staystitch curves and steam & stretch bias strips before use.
