Sew Cool, Sew Simple: Stylish Skirts
by Valerie Van Arsdale Shrader · Published by Lark Crafts
Flouncy, flirty skirts with delicate layers of polka-dotted fabric and a paneled skirt with decorative trim come directly from the pages of today's most popular catalogs. Skirts of all kinds, long and short, billowing or tailored, are stylish - and fortunately, so easy to sew. Geared toward the novice and those who need a refresher course, this attractive guide features fun graphics, contemporary designs, friendly hand-holding advice, and (of course) a great selection of chic patterns. One garment features an exposed seam with unfinished edges and an elastic waist with a tie. Another charming and ultra-feminine design uses the extremely popular eyelet fabric. Each project builds on the previous one, so sewers progressively develop a wide repertoire of skirt-making skills.
