Packed full of information on basic sewing techniques, this is an ideal book for the beginner as well as an enduring work of reference for those who already have sewing skills. The techniques are described and illustrated with step-by-step photographs and colour illustrations and cover all aspects of sewing, from dressmaking to soft furnishings. Types of fabrics are discussed and illustrated with information on what they are best used for. Dressmaking patterns are described in detail with information on how to use them and what the various instructions mean. Dressmaking techniques cover how to measure; using patterns; seams; hems; sleeves; collars; cuffs; zips; linings and stitches.Following this comprehensive techniques section is a collection of 15 projects containing very easy patterns to make the job of pattern-making as simple as possible. There are patterns for stylish clothes, such as a strapless bustier top, trousers, dressing gown, camisole and evening skirt as well as simple dressing up ideas for children. The projects show that by adding or amending the patterns, for example by adding straps to a top or removing sleeves from a jacket to create a gilet, you can create a whole range of garments.This comprehensive book contains all the detail and all the ideas you need to help you make your own individual clothes. For first time sewers all techniques are clearly explained. For busy sewers all designs are quick to make. Experienced sewers will find a wealth of helpful information on perfecting their dressmaking skills.
