Book Description

Make six classic garments and create a stylish multi-layered wardrobe from scratch.


Full-size patterns are provided for a neat vest with a boxer back detail, an elegant bias-cut long-sleeved dress, a simple long gathered skirt with a drawstring waist, a batwing wrap top, an oversized drop-shoulder jacket and a pair of classic wide leg trousers. By choosing seasonal cloth, the versatility of these projects can be enjoyed from the first hint of spring to the end of winter.


The aim of this book is to move beyond simplicity and dare the maker to develop new skills. With variations for tops, dresses, shorts and a coat, our precise step-by-step instructions and inspiring photography will enable you sew with confidence. The reward will be an all season, multi-layer wardrobe by your own hand. We hope you, the reader, are ready for this set of challenges and willing to pace yourselves through the more complicated garments.


Full-size patterns for all six garments are included, ready to be traced off and put to good use immediately. Make fashion work.

About Roderick Field

Carolyn Denham and Roderick Field are Merchant & Mills. They launched the company at the Hay Festival in 2010. They produce a range of cardboard patterns and ready-to-make kits and also source superb notions that they sell in stark, utilitarian packaging, standing in profound contrast to the pretty, flowery image of the average haberdasher. Carolyn has a degree in fashion and has lived and worked in Italy and New York. She spent several years in Interior Design. Roderick is an established photographer and writer with works in the National Portrait Gallery. He is currently working on a range of Merchant & Mills postcards and is in talks with Waterstone's about producing an oilskin Kindle cover. Merchant & Mills products are stocked by the Design Museum, Liberty, the Victoria and Albert Museum and Selvedge as well as independent retailers all over the UK and selected outlets in France, Japan and the US.
