Twinkle Sews: 25 Handmade Fashions from the Runway to Your Wardrobe Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Many Twinkle fans were first introduced to Wenlan Chias signature fresh, young, whimsical style through her knitting books. But before Wenlan knitted, she sewed. And the pieces in her fashion line, Twinkle by Wenlan, are seen not just on the fashion runways and in the pages of InStyle, Lucky, and Vogue, but in high-end stores with high-end prices such as Barneys and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Now, with the easy-to-follow instructions, keen advice, and 25 full-size patterns in Twinkle Sews, you can create your own couture! Choose from one of Wenlans coveted patterns, including favorites like her Annie Hall Skirt, Origami Blouse, White Magic Dress, and Flapper Camisole. The patterns come in five different sizes-from 0 to 16-and are included on a CD for you to print at home. Each garment has its own PDF pattern that can be printed on 8½" x 11" (21.5cm x 28cm) paper. Follow the simple instructions to assemble the sheets and voilà—full-size patterns are at your fingertips.

Along with providing inventive patterns, Wenlan teaches core home sewing techniques-how to sew a seam, insert a zipper, and interface fabric-and gives you the building blocks of garment construction. Youll have all the tools you need to turn what you see on glossy magazine pages into whats hanging in your closet.

From helping you pick the best fabric for each project to providing valuable sewing tips, Wenlan gives you everything you need to sew, unleash your creativity in fabric, and bring your fashion dreams to life. To wear a Twinkle piece is to feel both flirtatious and smart. To make one yourself is all that and more.

Synopsis:

Fashion designer Chia shares 25 sewing patterns form her playfully sophisticated, popular ready-to-war line, Twinkle by Wenlan. 90 full-color photos.
