    It's been a long time since I made adult clothes. I have a delightful 14 year old grand daughter that loves clothes and the few I've made for her. I would like to take it to the next level and will need all the help I can get. This would be at the least a good start.

  2. User avater pattyb88 July 29th

    I would love to win this book to sew knit tops

  3. User avater Qnypplan July 28th

    Blouses that really fit me, is something I need!

  4. User avater BevW July 28th

    Love princess seam dress, or tank tops

  5. yaseminozcan July 26th

    Silk camisoles or chemises. Divine!

  6. User avater Arted1 July 26th

    This book looks like something I need. I am starting back to sew after 30 years. Any help would be great. Thanks.

    Ladies Suit Jacket & skirts!!!! I love a challenge as well as an easy dress suitable for church & parties.

  8. User avater user-2652689 July 25th

    I am just learning how to sew. So every book I see I devouring it to get a understanding of material, patterns, how to's. My favorite item to sew is a maxi dress...I would like to learn how to add a collar to it.

    Thank you.

    This book would be a great help to me. I have just started back sewing apparel garments for me. Adjusting patterns is a must for my size and everything I read helps me.

  10. User avater Marty_Marie July 24th

    I love making Dresses!!!

  11. User avater dgriesenauer July 24th

    I love sewing a button down shirt for a man or woman. Seeing someone wearing a crisp button down shirt never gets old.

  12. User avater LanaKin101 July 24th

    I like to sew tank top dresses. Simple easy and they make great nightgowns.

  13. KJ_Lamb July 24th

    Shirts as it is so easy to find great, fun fabrics. I also like nice finishing details like French seams, even if no one else can see them.

  14. swearysewer July 24th

    my favourite (but involved) garment that i have thus far sewn is a blazer. but, to be honest, i love the process of sewing, so i am happy making most things. i would absolutely love this book: reading about technique has replaced my fiction addiction!

  15. User avater ShiningStar July 24th

    I love skirts.

  16. User avater user-2291610 July 23rd

    I love to sew garments made from patterns by The Sewing Workshop and Cutting Lines Designs. I went to a workshop with Linda Lee and Louise Cutting and fell in love with their patterns. Plus I learned so much.

  17. Christy0702 July 23rd

    I just finished my Craftsy Class with Sandra Betzina. I am having so much fun learing to sew. I bought my first sewing machine last year on Black Friday. I am completely self taught...well...with the help of you tube and Craftsy. The goal is work trousers. I mastered the front fly zipper insertion replaying Sandras video lesson like 100 times! LOL. My next weekend off, I will finally bring out the real fabric. I have made 3 muslins-which were a fitting nightmare. I opted to sign up for Sandra's Pant fitting class, and realized where I was going wrong. Anyway, I would love to win this Garment Construction Book. Good Luck to me ;-)

    My newest sewing love is shirt dresses. I recently finished Colette's Hawthorn Dress pattern and I feel in love. I am already designing the next one in my head! Plus there is usually not a lot of fitting problems. I would love to be able to make pants but the fitting scares me to death!

  19. User avater KristyLChan July 23rd

    I love to sew dresses best because I always wear dresses and they are easier to sew than pants or shirts! But I really should take the time to finally learn how to make a pair of good fitting pants

  20. User avater PlumCreek July 23rd

    I love to sew all manner of tops. Whether knit or woven, creativity and a good fit are my goals!

  21. User avater Jan140 July 23rd

    My fav garment is a comfortable top to wear with jeans. My current challenge is pattern adjustment for garments that I work on for my plus-sized step-daughter.
    Altering patterns is a challenge for me as I'm a novice.

  22. User avater Laisi July 23rd

    Tops, tops, favorite garment to sew.

    I really enjoy modifying a pattern to create a variety of styles.

  23. User avater FrancesKSews July 23rd

    My favourite garments are made from jersey as comfort is key and it's always fun to sew!

  24. User avater thill60 July 23rd

    Anything knit!
    Dresses, tops, skirts!!!
