This is a fun book for sewists.
I have been wanting to make my own lingerie for a while now and this book is perfect for a beginner like me.
Bright and colourful, the patterns are easy to follow and you do not need a lot of sewing notions to create them. They are adaptable and can easily be personalised with your own ideas.
All the projects can be completed in just a few hours and The content and advice given is simplistic and The six designs are pretty and wearable.
The one thing I disliked about the book is the pattern templates. They need to be enlarged, There is a website to go to and download the full sized pattern pieces,
There are 74..yes 74 A4 pages of pattern pieces that you print, then cut out and tape together.
This in my opinion is an inconvenience in time and extra cost. I do wish the authors and publishers would give the pattern pieces full sized, this would make this book so much more appealing.
That said this book is a good guide and I do really like it.
