Book Review—Sew What! Skirts: 16 Simple Styles You can Make with Fabulous Fabric

Here is a winning book for beginning sewers, as well as for those who have been sewing awhile, but would like to begin drafting their own patterns.

Sew What! Skirts: 16 Simple Styles You can Make with Fabulous Fabric by Francesca DenHartog is a great introduction to sewing and pattern making. As the author notes, ready-made patterns frequently do not give a good fit, because they are made to a “generic person” not a unique individual.

Ms. DenHartog shows how to make a skirt step-by-step, beginning with drafting a pattern to fit you. This great book is available at Amazon. .
