Love at First Stitch offers a refreshing approach to dressmaking for modern makers. With jargon-busting tutorials and a down-to-earth attitude, the book takes you from the absolute basics of threading your sewing machine through to creating a wardrobe full of gorgeous clothes that you'll be proud to say you made yourself.
Since the best way to learn is to get stuck in, Love at First Stitch starts you sewing straight away. Each chapter focuses on a project from one of the adorable garment patterns included with the book. You don't need to plough through a bewildering manual to work out how to make them - new techniques are introduced as and when you need them, so you can build your skills and confidence one project at a time.
* Printed patterns are included in the back of the book, layered on double-sided sheets for tracing off. Or if you don't like tracing, you can download A4 /Letter or A0 Files using instructions in the book to print at home or at a copyshop. The patterns included are:
- Plus, instructions for drafting your own simple patterns for the Brigette scarf and Clemence skirt.
