Sew U: The Built by Wendy Guide to Making Your Own Wardrobe
The first truly cool guide to making the essentials of a stylish wardrobe using 3 Simplicity(R) patterns created exclusively for this book. Like knitting before it, sewing is being reclaimed by a new generation; one that is bored by poor quality and homogenous design. Downtown fashion designer Wendy Mullin of 'Built by Wendy' will teach the creatively-inclined and ultra-stylish how to make the perfect skirt, shirt and trousers. She gives readers everything they need to know to begin sewing and provides step-by-step instructions and patterns directly from her own studio. She'll explain how to customise everything from the fit to the pockets so readers can create a thousand different looks using the same 3 patterns. These ideas will inspire readers to rethink and revamp all their old clothes to make unique, custom fashions. For those who find themselves brimming with ideas, but unable to make everything themselves, Wendy also offers guidance on how to work with a tailor.
