This book shows you how to sew your own wardrobe of flattering and comfortable skirts, dresses and tops. The designs feature wonderful, exaggerated bows and elegant frills to give you a beautifully feminine look.
There are three themed chapters – town, party and resort – to take you effortlessly from the city to the beach.
Town: A more tailored look with simple lines, using contrasting fabrics to add interest. Party: Giant bows, ribbon straps and sash ties add embellishment to these pretty party pieces. Resort: Sundresses with relaxed handkerchief hems, crossover tops, frills or a cute sweetheart neckline will keep you cool through the summer.
The twenty-one designs are based on seven simple shapes and a minimum of pattern pieces. They use straightforward sewing techniques, so you can make any of the garments with ease. Comprehensive, easy to follow instructions, with step-by-step diagrams, are included, together with a full-scale paper pattern in four dress sizes, so you can cut out your own pattern pieces.
