The Sewing Book, Merchant and Mills
A fundamental overview of the foundations of sewing moving on to fifteen achievable projects. You will build on the skills you will obtain as you progress through the book. Full of clear instructions, diagrams and photographs of the finished items.
176 beautiful and informative pages.
Part I introduces tools, techniques, our philosophy and working methods so you’re completely prepared for the fifteen fabulous projects in part 2. We guide you through the construction of an apron, bags, soft furnishings and even things to wear. Each task builds on the skills gained in the previous one and as if that were not enough we even throw in a couple of patterns for you to scale up and get cutting. Read, learn and make.
