BIRGITTA HELMERSSON • Zero Waste Pattern Book • NEW
Zero Waste Patterns by Birgitta Helmersson offers a modern approach to sustainable sewing. Using natural fabrics and core sewing techniques, learn how to stitch without waste and make a scandi-style collection of 20 garments.
Zero waste pattern cutting is a bit like a puzzle. You use a pre-determined length of fabric end to end by strategically planning your pattern pieces so that everything is used and then draw them onto the fabric. By using this unique "paperless" method you can eliminate both textile and paper waste from your sewing projects and take the fear out of learning to self draft and sew your own clothing.
This book, by Birgitta Helmersson, includes 5 simple zero waste pattern blocks-a t-shirt, skirt, singlet, shirt, and trousers. These can then be used to make a further 15 projects by making simple changes or mixing and matching your blocks into new designs, and comes with pattern layout instructions and templates to make sizes UK 6-30/US 2-26.
Once you have mastered the 5 blocks the possibilities are endless.
Please note that all the patterns in this book are new and are not sold as individual sewing patterns.
