The garments include a maxi dress/skirt, jersey top, simple jacket, trousers, fishtail skirt and a shift dress. The author has also included an additional section on ways to modify the basic patterns using ideas such as pockets and collars which you can choose to add to the basic patterns as your skills improve. Pattern pieces for these customising ideas are also included on the pull-out pattern sheets.
Written by a fashion industry professional and qualified teacher who has been teaching people to sew for 7 years, you will be guided through each project step-by-step and be making your own new wardrobe of perfectly fitting clothes in no time.
