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.

    The Hardest thing for me to sew is a great color and Lapel. I some how just can’t get them to look the same, but it I am continually work on it! I also Hat to do a lot of Gathering By hand… Hand goes numb, due to nerve danage.

  2. Penni says:

    Actually finishing the project…I hate to do hems!

  3. nancy sasso says:

    Fitting. The patterns never seem to fit properly. I find it difficult to make the alterations on the pattern. I usually have to take it apart after it has been completed and then make alterations. I would like to get it right the first time.

  4. Sharon K Conner says:

    I am left handed so zippers always give me the most problems

  5. Peggy says:

    I struggle with attaching gathered pieces to whatever I am sewing. I always get the gathers caught and they never lay nice….so frustrating.

  6. Therese Ruff says:

    A row of perfectly spaced button holes.

  7. David Hubert says:

    The collar is the hardest part for me. Turning to the perfect point, and making sure that it rolls corectly.

  8. Penny Dahl says:

    The waist band because of all the layers that have to go together.

  9. Mary Helene says:

    I prefer buttons over zippers because zippers don’t like me.
