Product description

This is a sewing handbook with 25 customisable dress silhouettes, complete with three full-size patterns from the author's own line. The author's designs are favoured by musicians, artists and actors, such as Natalie Portman and Pharrell. Every pattern can be altered to fit different body types and tastes. Designer Wendy Mullin embraces the renewed interest in dresses by offering up a sewing handbook with 25 fully customisable variations of her favourite dress silhouettes, complete with three full-sized patterns from her own line. From the perfect little black dress to a breezy summer tunic, Wendy guides readers through the process of fitting, customising and sewing dresses for every occasion. She explains how to assess body shape and provides suggestions about which silhouettes will flatter the most. She inspires readers to be their own designers as she shows how simple adjustments such as adding a collar, changing a sleeve or switching fabrics can lead to endless sewing possibilities.
