I was kindly asked by Heather Claus to review her new book Sewing and Fitting with Darts and there's a copy to give away! If you fancy winning a copy just pop a comment below and the random winner will be announced on 12th May. This is open to everyone around the globe, easypeasy!
I'm a beginner slowly building my knowledge and confidence in the sewing world. I loved this book! The instructions are super clear. Heather sent me the digital copy which had links to online discussion forums for most chapters, great if you're a Kindle user or like reading on your mobile device (if not you can see them on her website)! Heather talks you through the perfect dart - I wondered where I was going wrong with the finish and now I know!
I'm definitely going to give it a go. Perhaps starting with adding and removing dart shaping, I often have problems with fitting around the chest.
The book also includes a pants, sleeve and bodice slopers (blocks).
One thing I would say is this book is not for the more advanced, I think it's pretty simple techniques but perfect for the beginner. This is the first in a series of books. Can't wait for the next! Heather will give away one copy, so if you fancy one you know what to do! Pop a comment below, go on you, know you want to...!
