Perfect Plus Just Published!

Winter is still with us, but the weather is changing and we have happy news to share.

Perfect PlusIt's arrived!

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 Waist Pant.

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, efficient results.

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!
