Overview

“How to Make Your Own Dresses: For the Beginner” is a powerful dress making book packed with dress making advice you will want to read over and over.

How tired are you of going to department and/or clothing stores only to see the same styles worn by everyone else out on the streets? How about the last party you went to and there were two other people sporting your evening dress, only in different colors?

Are you tired of hunting from store to store to find that perfect dress to wear on a special occasion, or that summer dress to sport with your flip-flops? Can you thread a needle? If you can thread a needle you do not have to wear what society dictates what is “in style.”

You can create your image the way you see yourself. What better way to show the world who you are as a person than by sporting a dress you created yourself!

Inside you will find all the things that hot dress designers do not want you to know. All the secrets to designing the perfect dress for you are inside in an easy to read format. You will learn which fabrics are more forgiving and how to make your fabrics work for you and your body figure. With “How to Make Your Own Dresses: For the Beginner” you will never need to by a dress off the rack again!

With this handy resource at your disposal, you will find solutions to hide a short neck, or a plumper figure. You will learn which fabrics work best for which figures. You will also learn how to accent the positive and down play the negatives of your particular figure.

Allow Your Dress to Reflect Your Personality

You will no longer have to wear what clothing manufactures think is stylish. You can create your own dresses according to your style and personality. You’re not stuck wearing a dress that fits you well, but the colors, design or pattern is doing nothing for you. You choose the style, design, color and fabric used to create a dress made just for you.

The Possibilities are ENDLESS

Guess what? You do not need to use a manufacturer’s made dress pattern to create a dress. You can create your own dress patterns, OR, you can mix or match patterns, copy dress styles and so much more to create your unique dress.
Here is what you will learn inside this guide....

• Choosing a Pattern According to Figure
• Fabric: Pick Your Color
• Style Lines, Silhouettes, Balance and Proportion
• Fabric Choices-Texture, Design and Material
• Fabrics and Fibers
• Fabric Construction and Finishes
• Making Patterns
• Dress Making Terminology
• And so much more!

Even if you are familiar with the basics of dressmaking already, this dress making guide will reveal things that will expand your dressmaking knowledge.
