Book Review: Design-It-Yourself Clothes: Patternmaking SimplifiedBy Blemon
Friend, awesome stitcher, and amazing mom, Sabra of Sew a Straight Line has written today's book review of Design-It-Yourself Clothes: Patternmaking Simplified by Cal Patch. Like me, she asks for craft and sewing books for Christmas. Unlike me, she has actually made something from hers!
Head on over to her blog to read the full review. I've been eyeing this one up for a long time. And while I know how to make clothes from a muslin, I don't actually have a muslin and base pattern of my current body. It seems like this book might be the way to go. That shirt looks fabulous!
Thanks, Sabra! You rock.
