Here's how to take one basic skirt shape, add some creativity, and end up with 17 fashionable variations. The pattern, a simple no-waistband A-line in sizes 0 to 20, is included. --American Sewing Guild Notions Magazine; Spring 2013 If you, like me, live in jeans and can never find skirts that you'd actually want to wear, The Essential A-Line has the answer. Its beautifully photographed projects may make you feel somewhat unladylike to start with, but it does provide the answer to the above sartorial problem. A skirt for myself is a new venture but the seventeen projects within the pages of The Essential A-Line are relatively simple and have no waistband, which means it is "a cinch to sew a skirt in an afternoon". With the help of the book's paper pattern (which can be adapted to fit sizes 0 to 20) and Jona Giammalva's straightforward instructions, readers can sew themselves a whole plethora of a-line skirts. Beginning with a section on a well-stocked sewing kit, Giammalva's explanation of construction techniques is thorough and there is good advice on achieving a professional finish, which I, in particular, would do well to read carefully. The Essential A-Line offers readers the real possibility of well-fitting, flattering, fashionable skirts for all occasions, with no designer price tag or brand name in sight. http://mumtopia.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/3-ways-to-put-some-zing-into-your-sewing.htmlVom Verlag:
