Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Cheetham, Kathleen. Singer® Perfect Plus: Sew a Mix-and-Match Wardrobe for Plus and Petite-Plus Sizes. Creative Pub: Quayside. 2009. c.144p. illus. index. ISBN 978-1-58923-394-2. $25. FIBER CRAFTS

Cheetham’s projects for casual and workplace fashions are accessible for beginning sewers. The mix-and-match tips are reminiscent of fashion magazine features, providing hints for assembling creative outfits. It’s refreshing to see the clothes modeled on an actual plus-sized woman (the author herself). --Library Journal, August 2009

    Great Patterns, Love this book!

    I made the skirt and it's really pretty! When I chose the fabric I just stuck to what I like and the skirt turned out so well, it's really comfy and looks put together at the same time. I definitely recommend this book!
