Backed by decades of testing by the author, this easy-to-follow guide presents the fundamentals of sewing. Its clearly laid-out projects cover hand stitching, hand sewn fasteners, and seams, all while teaching a simplified approach to pattern making. Readers learn to translate their body measurements into patterns for garments of their own design. They follow the steps from developing a pattern, to preparing a fitting muslin, to creating a finished garment. Each project builds on the previous one to develop a full understanding of the costume construction process.
