Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In her first book, Smith, a sewing instructor and marketing and merchandising specialist for online craft behemoth Etsy, teaches sewists how to draft custom patterns for four basic skirt shapes—wrap, straight, flared, and high-waisted—and provides seven variations for each shape. The garments include plenty of simple, straightforward, beginner-friendly basics, as well as variations that demonstrate more advanced techniques. Even beginning sewists will feel confident drafting their own patterns under Smith's guidance. VERDICT There are plenty of books out there that explain how to sew a skirt from a commercial pattern, but this is one of a few beginner-appropriate books that covers pattern drafting in an unintimidating manner.
