The Party Dress Book: How to Sew the Best Dress in the Room by Mary Adams
The Party Dress Book: How to Sew the Best Dress in the Room

lulubell, January 18, 2011

For those of us with limited imagination, Mary Adams just opened the door! The Party Dress book includes a pattern for only one dress, but with oh so many ways to adapt it. This dress pattern is a timeless design. There are photos of at least 50 beautiful dresses in the book; all using the same pattern. Adams thoughtfully details useful techniques and offers inspiring discussion on color/fabric ideas. The detailed instructions read easily and seem to be spot on.
This book would make a great gift for anyone who likes to sew and loves a good dress. It's a quick read if you can stop goggling at the fantastic photos.
