Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Brooklyn designers and boutique owners Gilstrap and Potter focus on fit in their first pattern collection, which features variations on three basic skirt styles. A-line, pencil, and flared skirts work well with many body types and are simple to construct in their most basic form. Gilstrap and Potter walk sewers through the construction of a basic skirt in extensive detail then present variations on each style. The clear, step-by-step approach and friendly tone make these projects suitable for adventurous beginners and beyond. Don't let this book's trendy, youthful styling fool you—these garments could easily be worn by women of all ages.
