Tired of buying the same-old, at same-old in your local mall? Ready to whip up something a little more boho retro Soho?
downtownDlY Sewing brings a fresh, new look to sewing, with 14 patterns easy enough for begin-ners, sophisticated enough for the most urban hipsterette. It's like visiting your favorite vintage boutique, packed with easy-to-make treasures.
You'll find an off-the-shoulder top (for Flashdance nights), a glamorous pencil skirt (to pair with your 1940s pumps), a tunic dress (per-fect for those sexy-geek moods), a circle purse (so Audrey Hepburn), lazy-morning pj bottoms (for lazy evenings, too), a pretty circle skirt (for swingy summer days), and lots more wonderful, beautiful things.
Three full-size patterns are included; other projects have small-scale patterns you can enlarge on a photocopier. All include simple cut-ting and step-by-step instructions, and there's even a guide to basic sewing techniques for those new to the craft, as well as information on tools, fabric and thread, sizing, and more.
If you're a city girl at heart (with or without the big city), here are the styles you've been looking for. So go on, pick out some fabric! downtownDlY Sewing makes getting started as easy as getting on the subway.
