BOOK GIVEAWAY: The Colette Sewing Handbook
THE COLETTE SEWING HANDBOOK
In the "Cool Tools" section of SewStylish Summer 2012 we featured The Colette Sewing Handbook (Krause Publications, 2011) by Sarai Mitnick. The topics covered in the book include: sewing techniques, planning and fitting, working with patterns, working with fabrics, working with linings, and finishing techniques.
As a bonus the book includes five patterns neatly tucked in a pocket attached to the inside back cover. The packet includes patterns for a scalloped-hem skirt, a flutter-sleeve blouse, a sweetheart-neck sheath dress, an asymmetrical-flounce dress, and a lined dress with gathered sleeves. Each project will help you put the fundamentals outlined in the book into practice.
