    Review quote
    "A growing number of nostalgic hobbyists lately seek to revive the magic and glamour of other eras, stitching together their frocks to create looks not found on the rack. Guiding this trend are Nora Abousteit, a founder of BurdaStyle.com, and Jamie Lau...Following their lead, anyone with a Singer and nimble fingers can whip up a homage to Garbo, like a delicate 1930s-style day dress." --"The New York Times" "As I flipped through the pages, I found item after item just begging to be added to my wardrobe...this book is definitely going to keep me sewing--and stylish--for a long time to come!" --Haley Pierson-Cox, "Craftzine" "This book makes you feel like the possibilities for a single pattern are endless." --"Sew Well"
