Happy Monday seamstresses! To ease you into the week, we have a great book giveaway for you!
Love at First Stitch: Demystifying Dressmaking by Tilly Walnes
Tilly Walnes breaks down handmade clothing in an approachable, fun-to-read way. Each chapter contains a project, beginning simple with a scarf and ending with an impressive lined dress. Plus Tilly provides variations to make the project your own and suggestions for making sewing not only a hobby but a lifestyle and incorporating sewing into a busy schedule. These helpful sections outline how to approach your trip to the fabric store for the most organized and least stressful results, and sewing for your personal style and wardrobe. Tilly walks through the basics, from sewing lingo and supplies to more advanced techniques, such as staystitching, invisible zippers and facings. With seven projects, including pants, skirts and dresses, and the full patterns in eight sizes for each, sewists of all skill levels will enjoy this beautiful book.
