Product description

Sewing is back! Young, crafty women are discovering the fun and creativity of working with fabric, needle, and thread to create simple, colourful skirts, suitable for showing off as wearable art. "Sew What! Skirts" assumes no prior sewing experience (and no home class or mother with sewing skills!), and doesn't get bogged down with overly complicated instructions or patterns. Author Francesca DenHartog, a fabric fanatic and sewing instructor, has stripped skirts down to the basics: 15 styles, ranging from an A-line to a circle, wraparound, gored panel, tiered "hippie," layered, and more. All it takes to get started is basic body measurements (no need to go out and buy an expensive pattern), a machine, great fabric, fun embellishments, and a few sewing fundamentals. With a creative can-do attitude, playful photographs, and super-simple step-by-step instructions, "Sew What! Skirts" will connect a whole new generation with the craft of making clothing that expresses your own unique look and personality. It's all about the fabric, as DenHartog demonstrates with the colourful array of patterns and motifs featured throughout. Whimsical, colourful, and easy, the designs in this book are sure to unleash the creative spirit of every budding seamstress.
