Fed up of fast fashion and fancy making your own clothes? This is the ultimate guide to dressmaking for absolute beginners.

As well as step-by-step instructions for all the basic dressmaking techniques, there are instructions for six garments to choose from. These include classic styles that will never go out of fashion such as a maxi dress/skirt; jersey top; simple jacket; trousers; fishtail skirt and shift dress. There are fully graded paper patterns for all the garments so you can get started immediately. 

Once you have learnt the basics you can extend your skills with a section on more advanced techniques. Author, Wendy Ward, explains how to add details to your designs with pockets and collars which you can choose to add to the basic patterns as your skills improve to create a truly unique capsule collection.
