Overview

Lay it out, cut it out, sew it up, put it on!

Kay Whitt of Serendipity Studios proves that all you need to re-make your wardrobe are a few key things: Great fabric, easy-to-make patterns, a handful of simple skills, and your own personal sense of style!

Use Sew Serendipity to create a fresh, new look.

  • Included in the book are tissue pattern inserts for the skirt, tunic/dress and jacket--each with 6 variations detailed in the book. 3 basic patterns x 6 variations = 18 ways to show off your skills and style!
  • Kay provides the master instructions for each basic garment, and individual instruction for each unique look. Once you master the basics, changing it up is a snap!
  • Each clothing pattern is graded in seven sizes (bust: 32-44; waist: 24-36; hips: 34-46) from XXS to XXL. Use the "Custom Fitting" section of this book to learn how to measure yourself and adjust the patterns to get the best possible fit!
  • Embellish your designs to match your style, whether you're feeling the need for classic, tailored elegance, or you're in the mood for a little ruffled whimsy. Kay's simple embellishments make it a breeze to adapt your design to the look you want.
With Sew Serendipity, you'll find out how to lay out the pattern pieces, cut them out and sew them up. All you have to do is put them on and strut your stuff!

    Excellent Book ?

    This is an excellent book for beginners and someone that is more advanced. Kay Whitt offers step by step photos of each project along with patterns in sizes from X-small to 2 X-large. This is incredible for someone like me that like to make gifts for their friends.

    The spiral bound book is also great, it lays flat for easy reading. I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to learn the basics and make something great.

    I am patiently waiting for Kay to write another book, with patterns of course.
