Sewing School Basics : A step-by-step course for first-time stitchers Paperback


Sewing School Basics is a complete sewing course for first-time stitchers.

The book begins by telling you which pieces of sewing kit you need to buy, explains which fabrics to use, and how to use paper patterns.

The second part of the book is a structured course of 12 workshops, which build from the most basic hand-sewing techniques through to more advanced dressmaking skills.

At the end of each workshop, there is a step-by-step project, which reinforces the skill mastered in the workshop.

The projects range from simple hand-embroidered cushions to a lined throw, and from a shirred sundress to an organdie pleated skirt.

Techniques include embroidery, patchwork, quilting, dressmaking, and curtain-making, and there are useful tips and shortcuts throughout the book.
