The Shirtmaking Workbook by David Coffin

The book, The Shirtmaking Workbook by David Coffin is packed with patterns to help you create clothing easily! It's simply explained and easy step by step projects and photos inside. The colored realistic photos really are helpful and simple designs used often in clothing. It's an easy to understand book and plenty of examples to follow!
I am just starting to get into creating clothing and found that this book was very helpful and useful for me. I found the styles to be very nice and perfect for anyone.
It's got some very original looks that are normal in today's type of clothes found in any store. Plus, with the patterns supplied I am easily able to create and build my own custom style instantly. I feel like I'm cheating by how helpful this is for me and easy to use. You have a great option of collar styles to create, pockets and many more features you'd like to add to the shirt. 
Whether female or male, this book covers all types of shirts for both with ideas on creating new styles from the ones seen or adding some customizing to each pattern. I love the designs and styles that are shared in this book. It's extremely helpful and such an easy way to create shirts without being lost or finding patterns all over the internet! I love that it really has so many visual photos, stacked side by side and plenty of ideas and creative features to create.
