Book Description

Scandinavian fashion has long been admired for its stylish, clean-lined cuts and aesthetic. Breaking the Pattern is the first authentic dressmaking book that showcases the beauty of Scandinavian style.

Complete with stunning photography, clear illustrations and instructions, this book shows you how to create a coherent capsule wardrobe complete with a collection of 20 garments that are easy to make, wear and combine with each other.

The Finnish sewing duo behind the dressmaking fashion label Named Clothing, Laura and Saara offer up an enticing selection of tops, dresses, skirts, and trousers for the modern seamstress. You will build your skills as you work through the book and with plenty of variations suggested for each garment, there’s lots of room for you to add your own personal touches and quirks to each design.

Taking you beyond the patterns featured in this book, Breaking the Pattern will inspire you not only to build your sewing repertoire but also to grow in confidence with your own sewing.
