Please note the sizing in this book, L-XL (the largest size) is still only a UK 10-12. Also make sure you've lots of paper to trace designs onto as included patterns are all printed on top of one another and need tracing off.
These are the first jersey items I've sewn and whilst hemming took a bit of practise I made my first item in a day. If you like the look of the clothes just get hold of some jersey, stretch needles and have a go, its easier than you might imagine. Once you get the picture its relatively easy to pattern hack some of these designs if you want to change necklines etc. Be bold!
It saves lots of time and it is much easier than having to make patterns for what you like.
Really happy with it, instructions are there to sew the pieces as well :0)
You can't ask for anything more...
I made Pattern No.2 the one-piece drape top and after making one, I immediately had to make another. Once you've gone through the process of tracing the pattern (which takes all day), the sewing bit is quick and easy so you might as well make more if you like it.
This book is not for the beginner sewer. Pattern No. 8 the two piece gather drape blouse is a step up in pattern origami from Pattern No.2. It takes a while to get your head round but again, after making one, I made another and it's a lot easier second time round.
I thoroughly recommend this book (a) if you like the designs (b) your are competent sewer.
Unfortunately though if you are a size 14+ the patterns in the book may be too small for you.
