    Great How To Book

    I LOVE this book! With just a few measurements, it shows you how to make your own pattern for skirts that fit perfectly every time! I've made a few different types already and found the directions clear and easy to understand, and there are pictures to guide you along the way. It doesn't use all the sewing jargon you would find on your average pattern either, which makes it a great choice for novice sewers too. This book can be used as a starting point for coming up with your own patterns for more experienced sewers, or it can be used as a step by step set of directions for making the featured skirts for those who need more guidance.
