Product description

"The Stylish Dress Book" features an A to Z of cool tops and tunic dresses that you can wear anywhere. Using simple shapes and individual details, the book shows you how to craft a stylish collection of garments to your own taste. For anyone who knows the frustration of going into a clothes shop and finding racks of identikit clothes in cheap fabrics, this book will offer a fabulous home made alternative. As every sewist knows, DIY fashion is the only way to be stylish. What makes these Japanese sewing books different from other guides on the market is the simplicity of the projects. The instructions come through a series of simple, step-by-step diagrams, meaning that the sequence of construction is easy to follow. The book also includes two actual-size patterns. Choose from 26 different garments and then set to work to make your own unique outfit.

Review quote

"For experienced sewists who'd like to try some of the popular patterns coming out of Japan, this book is a good introduction. [...] Notably, however, more directions than usual are provided, and the size range is much greater than typically given, going up to size 16. Using Japanese-origin books as crafting manuals, even when well translated, is always a bit of an adventure; this book is a good place to start if so inclined."--"Publishers Weekly"
