Clothing fads come and go, but well-made basics are always in fashion. ... With the patterns, instructions, practical advice and inspiring ideas contained here, even a sewer with limited experience will be able to make dozens of garments. From 10 basic patterns--a versatile shirt, a collarless tunic, a tee shirt, a straight skirt, a full skirt, leggings with an elasticized waist, tailored pants, a jacket, a fitted vest, and a big vest--create an entire wardrobe that can be mixed-and-matched into endless outfits. The pieces can be made in summer- or winter-weight fabrics, for casual or special-occasion wear, and in numerous variations. ... Sewing techniques and the selection of tools, equipment, and materials are covered, with special attention paid to the characteristics of different types of fabric.--Publisher's description.
