Christine Haynes clear and encouraging instructions on sewing basics will guide any novice seamstress through the preliminaries with ease. But the main purpose of this book is to teach readers how to make modern, stylish and fun clothes they'll want to wear every day, without spending a fortune in the process. Including a classic shift, an A-line skirt and a slinky wrap dress, Haynes's full-sized patterns are designed to flatter any figure and each - of over 20 - stylish projects has endless variations, so crafters can create their own personalized clothes and feel proud wearing them.
