My book review of the new Finnish sewing book Helmat and the Adele dress I chose to make using a pattern from the book.
I got the English version of Nuppu print company's new book, Nuppuzine, to read and review. The book is about dresses and dreams but what does it mean?
I made a real Victorian linen chemise by hand using the pattern from the book Manual for Needlework and cutting out. My first completely hand-sewn garment!
I review the two books, Fabric for Fashion - The Complete Guide and Fabric for Fashion - The Swatch Book. These are books that every sewist's who wants to further her fabric knowledge, will love!
Everybody is talking about Breaking the pattern, the new book by Saara and Laura Huhta of Named clothing. Here is my review, some photos of the launch party and my Sade blouse from the book.
I bought the wonderful book, The Secrets of Sewing Lingerie by Katherine Sheers and Laura Stanford and tested the first recommended project, Pretty as a Picnic cotton mini. These knickers out of cotton lawn were very fast to make and fit nicely.
