Description

All you need to re-make your wardrobe are a few key things: great fabric, easy-to-make patterns, a handful of simple skills, and your own personal sense of style. Included are tissue pattern inserts for the skirt, tunic/dress and jacket - each with 6 variations detailed in the book. 3 basic patterns x 6 variations = 18 wasy to show off your skills and style. Kay Whitt provides the master instructions for each basic garment, and individual instruction for each unique look. Once you master the basics, changing it up is a snap. Each clothing pattern is graded in seven sizes. Use the "Custom Fitting" section to learn how to measure yourself and adjust the patterns to get the best possible fit. Check out the "Tools of the Trade" and "Sewing Techniques" sections for an overview of tools and skills you'll need to make the clothes in this book. Embellish your designs to match your style, whether you're feeling the need for classic, tailored elegance, or you're in the mood for a little ruffled whimsy. Kay's simple embellishments make it a breeze to adapt your design to the look you want.
