Description

do you want to learn how to draft your own sewing patterns? using your own measurements? of course you do! i wrote this book after years of teaching my simplified method of flat pattern drafting, and having students ask me what reference book i recommend. well, there wasn't one! the traditional patternmaking tomes are dry and dull, and don't talk about making the kinds of simple clothing we currently wear. so i had to write my own book!

you can read an excerpt, about drafting a button-down shirt or blouse, AND a new article i wrote about making your own leggings, on the Etsy blog:
http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/authors/hodgepodgefarm/

published by Potter Craft, an imprint of Random House. learn more and peek inside here:

i will sign your book unless you request otherwise; please let me know in the comments if you'd like me to use your name or a special message.

see what people have made after reading my book here:

the book will be shipped by USPS Media Mail, which takes 2-8 days. i am discontinuing overseas shipping, as i just sent one to Australia and it cost $23!

Shipping policies

i ship using USPS Priority Mail, which takes 2-3 business days. convo me in advance of purchase if you'd like to make other arrangements.

i also ship internationally by USPS Priority International, which takes 6-10 BUSINESS days. please convo me with your country and i will send you a shipping quote. please note that i am not responsible for duties or customs charges within your country.

i have made-to-order as well as ready-to-ship pieces in my shop. items that are indicated as "ready-to-ship" will be sent within 3 days of purchase, but usually the very next day. "made-to-order" items take 3-4 weeks to make and ship.

i CANNOT take responsibility for items lost in shipping, unless you want to add insurance to the package. this must be arranged in advance of purchase!!!

Additional policies

i am now offering made-to-order listings! here's how it works:

1. choose the listing that best fits what you desire. the details (i.e. sleeve length, yoke style, etc) will be specified in the description. there is flexibility within each listing, but they are priced according to the details as posted. if you have questions before ordering, please ask!

2. choose your fabric from the *hodge podge fabric stockroom* over on flickr:

i am still happy to create other custom pieces as long as they are within the realm of what i do. feel free to convo me with questions and i can create a special listing just for you!
