If you love sewing or think you want to try, this is the book for you.
Tine Solheim shows you five basic patterns for a tunic, an A-line dress, a statement skirt, a large shirt and a kimono with endless possibilities. Here you will come up with ideas for materials, whether it is monochrome, thick or thin, patterned or plain, or a combination of the above.
What will you choose and what look are you interested in? How do you want it to do up? With or without zip or buttons, at the front or at the back? What will you use the garment for – everyday wear or parties? Do you want something classic or bohemian?
With Tine’s useful explanations and detailed pictures of the garments, you will be inspired to create your very own look.
Five basic patterns with several variations.
Inspiration to create your very own look.
Complete patterns can be found at the back of the book.
