I have that book too – be curious to see if it is helpful for you. I am more a muslin fitter vs. tissue fitter but the rest of the book is awesome.
I go with muslin fitting too so this will be interesting. I’ll def. post about it.
I just picked up a copy from the library, too. Y’know… to peruse before I dish out for my own copy.
Good idea. I couldn’t find it at the library so decided to buy it anyway. Let us know what you think when you’ve had a chance to put your feet up and read it.
Woot woot! 😉
😀 true, you have to look beyond the 80s/90s vibe 😀
The other one is on its way too …. so I’ll have a double whammy for the trou! I am hoping for success for sure 🙂
so you are armed now 🙂 Take it easy 🙂 though …
Oh I know. I’m rather excited in a quiet kinda way. Actually I need to make PJs and the silk version of my peasant top first, then I’ll be gunning for the skinnies.
Wow! you are busy… and not so easy fabrics …
I haven’t done it yet though! The white top was a ‘muslin’ and I’m happy with the result so have washed some lovely silk georgette which is waiting for me now. But first I must make some PJ bottoms. Must must must.
Yay. Ignore how dated the look and feel of this book is. The content is invaluable.
Yes it has had rave reviews from, well everywhere! I am quietly excited.
LOL… I know that everyone loves this book, but the cover design is just awful ^__^ (I’m sorry, I just can’t get past things like that – I’m a designer LOL) That being said, please glean some wisdom from it and shower it on the rest of us – I know you can conquer the skinnies!!! 😀
LOL. I will share what I glean with pleasure 😉
This book is being recommended by so many people – cant wait to see what you think! Buy yes/no?
It has, yes. I’ve had a good flick through and it looks good so I’ll see how I get on using it with making my damned skinnies. Promise to let you know when I get to it 🙂
You can do it! Also the facial expression of the lady on the bottom left of the book is just hilarious!
You know I hadn’t noticed!! JJ just looked at the cover and said … “how old is that book?”. It does have a 80s/90s vibe right? Anyway am going to curl up on the couch shortly and have a read.
Hehe! 🙂 Go girl!
Deep breath ….
