Then I highly recommend this little book.... so much that I stock it in the Crafty Mamas shop.
It's not an expensive hardcover book...it's a nifty little softcover, and at $15.00 it will earn it's keep in no time. A Crafty Mama's Favourite. This soft cover book has step by step illustrations, clear advice, and the coolest hippy clothes to make! It shows you how to make your own patterns for and sew...skirts, pants, dresses, a waistcoat, and heaps more.
This book has been an indispensable resource for over 40 years, they keep reprinting it...you need it!
