Perfect Plus Just Published!
Winter is still with us, but the weather is changing and we have happy
news to share.
In Perfect Plus, I show you how to create a wardrobe that is just right
for you. Using ready-to-wear techniques, we walk through the design process
and profile your needs from lifestyle to comfort. I discuss color and fabrics
- ways to use these to expand a basic core wardrobe from day to evening.
When you buy the book, you get four brand new full-sized patterns, printed
on tissue in sizes 14 to 24.
Each pattern has its own Fit Tips section and Sewing Instructions. None
of the styles are difficult and each has its steps laid out in an efficient "get
it done" approach.
Once you've completed the basic patterns, why not expand further, as ready-to-wear
does and make something more. If the pattern fits, keep using it!
For each garment, I've included ways to restyle or modify and get more "bang
for your buck".
The Shapely Blouse has a choice of a long two-piece or a short cap sleeve
plus two collars. In addition, I demonstrate how to change the look with
covered buttons, piping or fast, fake cuffs.
The Classic Fly Front Pant can be converted to a Capri Pant or a Full Elastic
The Slimming Jacket is a simple dressmaker style with pockets and over the
shoulder princess seams. It can be made with or without collars and with
or without lining. The lining technique is taken from ready-to-wear for fast,
The Flirty Skirt will flow beautifully over all your curves. Its six gores
can be cut on the straight of grain or on the bias. This skirt is also very
pretty cut in layers of chiffon over solid.
At US $25 / CDN $27.50, this book is a bargain that I hope you will take
advantage of and enjoy!
