Product description

"Alabama Studio Style" picks up where "Alabama Stitch Book" (STC, 2008) left off, featuring new techniques and a stunning collection of sewing projects and also furthering the Alabama Chanin philosophy that style extends from what we wear and how we decorate our homes to how we spend our time and the care we show for our environment and traditions. This is a craft and lifestyle book all in one. "Alabama Studio Style" begins with detailed instructions for the hand-sewing, quilting, embroidery, beading and stenciling techniques required to create the featured projects, each one made with organic or recyled materials and designed with Alabama Chanin's haute homespun flair. Next up are over 20 extraordinary couture fashion and home projects, many of the same ones that are handmade by the Alabama Chanin artisans in and around Florence, Alabama and sell at stores like Barneys and Bergdorf Goodman for thousands of dollars. Among those included are the company's celebrated camisole and tank dresses, a skirt, a tunic, a scarf, several pillows, woven chair seats to revive old chairs, a table made from scrap wood and then embellished with stenciling and stitching, even a cake plate composed of castaway china. Like "Alabama Stitch Book", a pullout pattern sheet and stencil are also included. Rounding out "Alabama Studio Style" are inspirational and instructional sidebars that will help readers to expand upon the skills and ideas they learn about in this book as well as three delicious party menus with recipes - an autumn brunch, a pickling party and a celebration.
