5.0 out of 5 stars Great designs, easy to make, 18 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shape Shape: Sewing Clothing Patterns to Wear Multiple Ways (Paperback)
Dressmaking enthusiasts keen to create the unusual designs in this book have been using the original Japanese edition for several years. Also keen but not quite that keen, I have waited for the English version, and I am really pleased with it. It is easy to trace the full-size patterns from pattern sheet. (If you have traced a Burda pattern and despaired, you will find these are FAR easier). Make-up is straightforward with concise instructions. I would recommend trying one of the looser tops first to get a sense of sizing. It's possible to see some some pages on [...] where there is an editorial review of the book together with some examples which members have made up. The book contains 19 designs. To me the most interesting are the blouses, and the good layering pieces described as stoles, shrug, and vest, all easy to integrate with an existing wardrobe. There are also four skirts, a pair of trousers, various scarves and a bag. It is likely that most people would find something here to make.
