Book Description

If you've never used a sewing machine before, or if you want to refresh your skills, Sew Step by Step will teach you the essentials. Taking you through the basics, including the various features of a sewing machine and the qualities of different fabrics, this simple handbook will soon have you making and mending your own clothes and home furnishings.

Discover how to read patterns and adapt them to different body measurements, and find the right fabric for every project with an easy-to-use guide to different materials. Follow fully-illustrated guides to more than 200 key techniques, including how to insert collars, sleeves, and pockets into garments, and how to customise them with delicate finishing touches, including appliqué and quilting. Easy to use and fully illustrated, Sew Step by Step gives you the confidence you need to design, create, and mend with your sewing machine.
