Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Adult/High School
Light in tone, this guide is chatty and hip. Projects range from a sundress to a flower pin, a banana bag, and an iPod case. Each pattern takes one spread. The introduction notes that the authors' 99 Ways to Cut, Sew, Trim & Tie Your T-Shirt into Something Special (Potter, 2006) requires less-advanced skills. Readers are instructed to review the illustrated glossary of techniques and to go over a pattern before beginning work on it. Projects are rated on a scale of difficulty and approximate time for completion is listed. Use of a sewing machine is recommended. Each pattern includes a line drawing, with a superimposed photograph depicting the finished project, and illustrated diagrams with step-by-step, basic instructions. The book also includes two techniques for creating patterns and explains how to take body measurements. Instructions for each pattern are very basic and assume some knowledge of sewing/tailoring or studious use of the glossary.

    Gift

    I bought this for my grand-daughter who is a Freshman fashion design major in college. She is very creative and this helped her get ideas.

    Great book for those w/ sewing & patternmaking skills

    This is a really cool book, but it was not written for beginners, or even those at an intermediate level, best for those who've been doing this for awhile.
