The wonderful Tilly of the BBC's Great British Sewing Bee has written this fantastic book which promises to simplify the confusing world of dressmaking. In fact it is so fantastic that is has been nominated for Best Sewing Book in the British Sewing Awards 2014!
Love at First Stitch offers a refreshing approach to dressmaking for modern makers. With jargon-busting tutorials and a down-to-earth attitude, the book takes you from the absolute basics of threading your sewing machine through to creating a wardrobe full of gorgeous clothes that you'll be proud to say you made yourself.
The book includes full-scale pattern sheets in 8 sizes ready to use or trace off. The patterns are: Margot pyjama bottoms, Delphine skirt, Megan dress, Mimi blouse, Lilou dress - plus instructions for drafting your own simple patterns for the Brigitte scarf and Clémence skirt. Variation ideas are offered for each project so you can add your own special touch and make your clothes unique to you.
