I have such a fun book to tell you about today! It’s called Sew Many Dresses – Sew Little Time by Tanya Whelen and I really am so impressed with how awesome this book is!
If you have been wanting to learn to sew up apparel, or you’ve been making dresses for years, either way you’ll want to pick up a copy of Sew Many Dresses. Tanya has put SO much information into this book! There are tips for getting started, information for so many different dress styles, and lots of ways to create your own dress – in just the style you like! I was blown away by how detailed all the instructions and patterns were.
The book is laid out in a really smart way. Tanya starts with a basic bodice and then adds in all sorts of different variations. Plus you can add in collars, sleeves, and so much more. Then she works her way to all sorts of different skirt styles! Straight, pleated, wrap – there are so many different options.
Did you ever play with those fashion plates as a kid? You could mix and match different tops and bottoms, and then color up the styles and fabrics you liked. That’s what this book reminds me of! You can pick your favorite bodice, your favorite skirt, and then add in any extras you want. It’s so great.
I can’t wait to get started on sewing up dresses made just for me! Makes me feel like a fancy designer – when that’s totally not the case. :)
