nonfiction; sewing (stretch/jersey fabric; slow-sewing decorative details)
Patterns (lots of them!) are included on CD, so you'll have to print--either at a printer's that can print on large paper or by using a tiling program (not included) to break them up for printing onto 8-1/2x11"s--before copying to your size (with some of simpler patterns, an experienced pattern drafter may be able to just wing it using the basic shape given in the illustrations and their measurements).
Pattern sizing: XS (28-30" bust, 23-24" waist, 32-33" hip) through XXL (44-46" bust, 35-36" waist, 43-44" hip). "Note: When choosing your size, remember that cotton jersey stretches when worn. What begins as a snug dress will relax after only an hour of wearing." Pictured models vary in age and size.

Alabama Chanin's patterns are always so comfortable-looking but still stylish (some of them quite fancy and fashionable) but I'd like this a lot better if the patterns were included on paper--this particular edition did not. It does give instructions on lots of various alterations as well as a (lovely!) stitch library with a few tips/instructions for creating the beautiful hand-stitched detailing that AC is known for.

Adult nonfiction; sewing fashions. Natalie Chanin explains in detail the steps she goes through to make her unique clothing line--from picking out the fabric to deconstructing a t-shirt, and thorough instructions for doing embroidery, stenciling, beading, applique and reverse applique. She includes plenty of lovely projects and while I would probably never want to put that much time into a t-shirt or a table cloth or even a head scarf, I found the discussion of the techniques to be valuable, and there are a few projects (the rag boa scarf and the cut-up t-shirt chrysanthemums) that might be done in an hour or less with a very minimal amount of skills required (read: appropriate for a library program for teens or adults).… (mais)
