"I received a free copy of the book in exchange for writing a review"
Learning to sew can be difficult, but rewarding once mastered! There are many different places you can find some helpful tips and guidance. Yet I do feel I have found a simpler way for young sewers and even beginners to learn, from a recently released book!
This book is known as Sewing School Fashion Design by Amie Petronis Plumley and Andria Lisle. It's part of the Sewing School Series and is made perfectly for young boys and girls who want to make their own fashionable and stylish clothing. Even beginners, as adults can get their hands on this book and learn sewing for themselves by following along with the photos that illustrate each step and written directions. Like any good guide book, photos are the key for many, especially myself. You won't get lost with the words when you can really get an idea of what is happening through an image.
Additionally, the steps are organized perfectly to help you reuse those taught skills from the beginning to use on the projects that continue throughout the book. After you get an idea of what you may need for each project and what each tool does, you then get helpful tips and examples on perfecting those skills and why these steps may need to be taken before or after working on a project. This could be as simple as learning to use a specific stitch, pinning, patterns set up or how to prepare each piece of fabric for sewing. Plus, you can get creative with many fun projects that add additional crafting into the mix, like embroidery design or just creating pockets and ruffles.
Finally, this is a wonderful book. It's simple to follow and very easy to understand. The book breaks it down and makes sewing for newcomers or those who have some knowledge and want some new ideas, how to sew beautiful clothing simply! Now you can finally have a wardrobe full of beautiful clothing and all designed by you!
