So yesterday I did the bad thing I always do when walking to my car from work. I stopped in at The Booklover and wandered over to the craft section, and I found this:
I think this will really help with my quest to learn to sew. No patterns, instead it uses simple shapes to make ten different garments, and then tells you how to make each one in eight different ways.
It teaches you how to use your own favorite fitting jumper as a pattern template, and even sew trousers from tracing around jeans. It's amazing!
There is also a great website with more ideas for inspiration.
I really want to make the hoodie, in a light denim with buttons. Maybe a job for the upcoming long weekend?
