World Book Day 2015

Posted on March 05, 2015

Hello there,

To celebrate World Book Day we thought we'd share with you our favourite sewing book of the moment. A gift from one of our lovely friends it's the "Stylish Dress Book Simple Smocks, Dresses and Tops" by Yoshiko Tsukiori.


This book features an A to Z of contemporary dresses, tops and tunics. Using simple shapes, but with lovely design details including pin-tucking, lace trims, soft gathers and ruffles, smocking and embroidery, this book shows you how to craft and create your own unique stylish wardrobe!

 Each design is beautifully styled and photographed as you can see below:


Suitable for those with some sewing experience, this book comes complete with full-scale patterns, however you will need to trace these off for each design, and for each style there are simple step-by-step instructions and diagrams.


With 26 different garments to choose from this book is fabulous value and will help you to re-invent your wardrobe. There are so many lovely styles the difficulty is deciding which one to make first!!

Whichever one you decide on, happy sewing!
