I haven't sewn any of the smaller projects in the book, so can't comment on those, but the garment patterns are top notch, relaxing to sew by hand, and enjoyable to wear.
A great read and a valuable addition to my sewing book library.
I have not put this book down since it arrived in the mail. The projects are so beautiful. Natalie can do more with cotton jersey than I ever imagined. I've already bought materials to start my first project from the book and am currently cutting my stencil. The instructions are clear and easy to understand.
So this weekend I'm looking foward to making the "Put Up Tomato Tart" and "Angie's Classic Cupcakes". Then I'll be sitting back with my cupcake, a cuppa tea and my project. There are enough projects, recipes and inspiration to keep me going for the next few months. I know it's early in the year but this is my pick for the best craft book of the year.
I also like that t-shirt material is used. What a comfortable fabric. The pattern included is multiple patterns in one. And... our author assumes that items are meant to last through generations and she encourages use of quality products that would ensure the possibility. I like the explanations of the why's for items used. Sewing is more than just fabric, pattern and thread. It is an art that anyone can learn and refine. I still mend clothes that are worth mending.I spent time teaching my children what to look for in worthy articles of clothing, despite the price.
Whether or not you choose to hand sew, an appreciation for the instruction and essence of generations of quality of craft can be found in the Alabama Chanin books. And why not try the recipes, too!
