Introduction
Have you ever wished you could sit down with a dress designer and learn her secrets? Well, now’s your chance! I’ve been designing clothes for 󰀱󰀰 years, and I teach classes in how to sew creatively. In this book, I’ll share what I know about basic patternmaking and sewing techniques. I’ll do my best to make this easy for you, and throw in designer and industry knowl-edge to back up the process. Even if you are totally new to sewing, fear not. You will learn how to make great wearable pieces that are totally unique, with customizing and styling tips throughout the book to keep you inspired and thinking for yourself. Here’s a rundown of what’s waiting for you:
Chapter 1:
 􀁆bc d 󰁔
It doesn’t matter if you don’t know warp from weft; all will be explained here. Plus, I’ll give you some suggestions for fabrics that are fun to work with, so fabric shopping isn’t quite so overwhelming. And while you’re browsing the store, check out the materials that are listed in this chapter. Once you’re stocked up on the right tools, you’ll be able to tackle the proj-ects with ease. Have a good read through this section and get familiar with your new best friends!
Chapter 2:
 􀁓lp, Ptn, d Mul
This section is your foundation for the whole dressmaking process. Be sure to fill in the size charts on page 37 with your measurements, and keep a copy with your sewing tools. You can compare your specs against the mea-surements of the slopers in the back of this book, and from there see if you want to make any alterations. With clear information on slopers, patterns, and drafts, you’ll easily be able to follow the patternmaking instructions. Here is where you will learn how to adjust the slopers provided to create a custom fit.
