My book has finally been published and is available on Amazon.
The concept for my book started way back in 2009. I researched and practiced various methods to draft the basic bodice block, completely different to the method I learned at the fashion academy. It did not take me long to present the perfect method to my students back then. The book is a great companion for all home sewers and dressmakers, as well as self guided learners. Best of all is the fact that it is suitable for all body types and sizes. You learn to take accurate body measurements from a clearly illustrated chart. Learn to draft patterns for dresses, jackets, skirts, trousers, sportswear and even a full swimsuit.
