Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Design a skirt for every day of the week! With these 28 irresistible projects, you'll learn all the techniques you need to custom-design and sew fabulous skirts that fit you perfectly. Smith shows you how to draft a pattern for a custom fit and then alter that pattern into one of four basic silhouettes: wrap, straight, flared, and high-waisted. Each skirt can then be easily redesigned into seven distinct and delicious looks — one for each day of the week. These projects are suitable for sewists at every level, including beginners.

Synopsis:

Stylish skirts for wherever the day takes you.

Sew a month of skirts using four classic styles — wrap, straight, flared, and high-waisted — as your starting point.
