Product description

Review

'If the show left you itching to rustle up a button-back blouse, this companion book guides you through 30 dressmaking projects with tips on hand-sewing skills, machine technique and following patterns. The book is structured around fabric choice, with each chapter dedicated to a specific material. Novices are advised to try camisole tops and cargo shorts in "beginner-friendly cotton", while more accomplished tailors are ushered towards tweed, lace and a scarily complex "corset gown".' --Radio Times, 17 February 2015

'[...] this is definitely the best book to have come out of The Great British Sewing Bee. It has loads of patterns that I actually want to make...such fun!' --Did You Make That? Blog, 2 March 2015
