I treated myself to a new sewing book last week which arrived at the weekend and am totally in love. I am currently reading it cover to cover and am already thinking of how to improve the next versions of some of my clothes.
|How to Use, Adapt and Design Sewing Patterns|
I have quite a number of sewing related books with everything from basic techniques to step by step projects to couture techniques but none of them have grabbed me like this one - yes I dive into them every now and again for the odd tip, but I have never sat down and read them.
I have recently started thinking more about how to adjust garments the proper way rather than just taking in or adding to the side seams (please tell me everyone at least starts out doing that?!) but it always looks so complicated to me when I read tutorials on blogs. This book has made everything click into place and I can't wait to get started on my 'proper' sewing.
Do you have a book that made everything fall into place for you? What would you say is your 'sewing bible'?
