Product description

What's not to love about having a complete wardrobe of unique skirts, one for everyday of the week and every occasion? Once a sewist learns how to draft a customised pattern to fit her body perfectly, she can alter it and explore the endless creative opportunities! Now, sewing enthusiasts of all levels can design skirts that are fun and fabulous for workday to weekend and dressy to casual. In Skirt-a-Day Sewing, sewists learn not only how to draft patterns for a custom fit but how to design and make skirts that express their style and mood. The book offers four classic silhouettes - wrap, straight, flared and high waisted- and seven variations of each, for 28 skirts in all! In each project, sewists will master a different technique, from making asymmetrical hems to adding vertical panels to drafting a fly front, using woven fabrics like silk, brocade, tweed and cotton. With in-depth explanations of each design, Nicole Smith makes it easy for aspiring fashion designers and crafty stitchers alike to go from sketch to skirt.
