About the Author:

David Page Coffin’s career as a sewing expert, teacher, and writer began with a self-published how-to book about making custom shirts, which became a bestseller and led to an 18-year editor’s post at Threads magazine, where both his sewing and publishing skills found a worldwide audience. Coffin is also the author/creator of the authoritative and bestselling sewing books Making Trousers for Men & Women and The Shirtmaking Workbook, hundreds of sewing articles, two Craftsy classes, and YouTube videos with hundreds of thousands of views. He has taught workshops throughout the United States and Canada and in the UK, appeared on nationally syndicated sewing shows, and been a featured host on various sewing bulletin boards and websites. He lives in Brookings, Oregon, with his wife Ellen. www.shirtmakingwithdpc.com

Review:

"...in the online sewing world, sometimes it feels like there's a scarcity of books that aren't aimed at beginners, so it was really refreshing to find a book that...would be inspiring to newbies and advanced sewers alike (and super inspiring to shirt geeks like me)!"

- Sonja of Gingermakes.com

"...an immersion course in design, with a particularly in-depth look at collars...David doesn't tell you how to sew a shirt from start to finish; you can buy a pattern to do that. But if you start with a pattern and apply his design inspirations, you'll soon be a shirt geek, too."

- American Sewing Guild Notions magazine
