Description

Learn to sew beautiful, simple handmade clothes and begin a journey to loving the body you have.

Draft patterns and sew clothes that fit your unique body! In this garment-making primer, sewing is an act of radical kindness and self-care. Learning to sew for yourself enables you to make exactly the kinds of clothes you want, and empowers you to solve the fit issues that come with buying commercial clothing designed to fit one "ideal" body type. Sanae Ishida, author of the award-winning Sewing Happiness, guides you through the process with her inspiring personal story and gentle instruction in the simple art of pattern-making and garment sewing. 

Create a complete capsule wardrobe of tops, bottoms, dresses, tunics, and outerwear. Each of the 15 projects (including variations) is designed to look good on a wide variety of body types—they're fashionable yet timeless, and let you move with ease. Every pattern is self-drafted (no printed pattern sheets here—you will learn to draft and customize basic shapes to your own body measurements for a comfortable fit). Patternmaking has never been easier than in this intuitive, fully illustrated book.

Includes:
  • Lookbook with photographs of the projects on diverse models
  • Primer on basic sewing, pattern drafting (slopers and muslins), and fitting
  • Step-by-step illustrated instructions for all 15 projects and variations
  • Heartwarming personal essay on the author's journey to body positivity
  • Learn to sew beautiful, simple handmade clothes and begin a journey to loving the body you have.
