Hurray! Thank you, lovely hostesses, for announcing that the newest sewing challenge is nigh. In the meanwhile, I got the best book for Christmas, and thought that the Sew? I Knit-ers might be interested.
Sew What! Skirts: 16 Simple Styles You Can Make With Fabulous Fabrics shows you how to draft your own patterns for a simple A-line and a straight skirt, then gives you oodles of different variations so that you never have to make the same skirt twice! For those that cling to their patterns like a life raft (that would be myself included), this book promises to set us free.
