New book for the home library

I love getting new sewing related books and today, I received "Sew Serendipity" by Kay Whitt. She is the creative force behind the Serendipity Studio patterns.

So far, I have only read the introduction and steps to a custom fit. I love her attitude. I have flipped through the rest of the book because I just couldn't wait to see what projects were in it. Oh, there is your very typical sewing book stuff - sewing machine talk, tools talk, and technique talk. Then, you get to the first project - a six gore skirt with lots of options. Drum roll on the fabric suggestions: quilting cottons (yes, folks), linen, or silk. The projects are arranged by skill level starting with the skirt and moving on to tunics, dresses, and jackets. By the way, patterns are included.

Oh, I did work on the project for my husband long enough to figure out the circumference (required amount of fabric) using the formula given yesterday, and double-check it using a tape measure. The formula and the tape measure were almost exactly the same.

Happy Sewing!
