So work-wise I am still reasonably on top of everything (well it is only 1 week into the year). I still need catch up on the emails a bit, order more supplies for the shop, and I have a looming deadline for the Sewing World Magazine bag, but otherwise most things are in order and under control, that is until this came though the letter box for me - DAMN!
This book is going to save my short ass. We crafters have access to so much yummy fabric, but short folks do not have access to yummy skirts. Ohhhhh if I start thinking about whipping up some skirts now I just might have some to wear for spring/summer.
The book doesn't have patterns, instead it teaches how to make your own - no wait, come back! The instructions are clearly written and they shouldn't freak a beginner out which is great because I'm not too hot at dressmaking. The first part of the book teaches you how to measure yourself, how to transform those measurements into types of skirt, and it teaches you stuff like how to do hems, zips, and darts etc.
Have any of you bought this skirt book yet? Which skirt/s did you make?
I'll announce the Amy Butler Pattern monthly sewing contest winners in my next post.
