When I travel back home i.e India I get lot of dresses for myself mostly mad
e and designed beautifully. Recently, I checked couple of my dresses and they were not fitting me and I was so damn upset. I was not sure what I should be doing with them as the fabric used are very beautiful and I hate throwing anything. Well, I guess now I know what I should be doing with them and thanks to "Little Green Dresses" by Tina Sparkles.
This book is completely based on DIY and Green theory which I love the most. She talks about each project in detail explaining what and how you can put them to use. the book covers on pattern drafting which I think is a great plus for people who love sewing but dont know how to draft patterns.The patterns are very well explained and accompanied by diagrams wherever needed. The patterns are very easy yet you can achieve a very modern looking outfit's in no time. Little Green Dresses is a great book with 50 Original Patterns for Repurposed Dresses, Tops, Skirts and More.
