Sew it Up by Ruth Singer

Book Description

Sewing is no longer the preserve of housewives. More and more people are making or customising their own clothes, curtains or accessories but few have been taught the basic sewing skills. This book contains everything you need to know. It covers both hand and machine techniques used in crafts, dressmaking and soft furnishings, illustrated with full-colour photography and with tips, masterclasses and projects. Written by an accomplished textile designer and teacher, this is an enjoyable and easy-to-use book with a no-nonsense approach. Ruth will show you how to put in an invisible zip, make your own trimmings and how to alter clothes using pleats and gathering as well as decorative techniques such as appliques. Projects will demonstrate these skills and include clothes, cushions, toys and bags.
