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:

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!
