Comfortable clothes, easy to fit, easy to sew. While I often love to wear ruffles, lace and all things frue-frue, I also like comfortable, simple garments that go with many other pieces and are simple to sew.This book has 8 basic patterns in sizes XS, S, M, L for the following garments:1. Wraparound dress, also instructions for 2 tops.2. Raglan sleeve top, also tunic and jacket3. Jumper, also 2 dresses4. 3 pant styles5. 3 skirt styles6. 3 more skirts7. 3 blouses8. 2 shirts and a tunicThe book layout is very pretty, as are the photographs. Every garment is shown, the instructions and diagrams are clear. Directions are basic enough for beginning seamstresses, along with suggestions for fabrics and accessories.No special fitting worries with these clothes, all are comfy and roomy. Lots of forgiveness here. There are no intricate curved seams, insets, linings, complicated closures…nothing that might scare you off if you are a sewing…
