Format: Hardcover
I agree with everything stated in the first review of this book. As a "seasoned" sewer I find it hard to find books that really have new tips and how-to's to add to my repertoire of knowledge. Knits have been such a challenge to work with that I just stopped using them all together. There is tons of inspiration and information on sewing with knits and I can't wait to get started on a project using them. The book is really beautiful as are the designs. I am so pleased I purchased it and highly recommend it to all. If you would like to know more before purchasing this book, there are some great reviews, that have a much more detailed explanations of the book on amazon.com.

I love this book! It is a generous creative gift to anyone who wants to have their own creativity stimulated. The book is full of ideas and instruction as well as just beautiful design. There are not enough superlatives to describe it.

I love all the Alabama Chanin sewing book; they have beautiful illustrations of the projects and easy-to-use patterns included. This book is the best one yet.

ALTHOUGH I'VE BEEN SEWING SINCE BEFORE I STARTED SCHOOL (AND AM WAAAY PAST THAT NOW), I FIND ALL THE ALABAMA STUDIO BOOKS TO BE A MARVELOUS INSPIRATION AND STEPPING OFF POINT - HOWEVER, IN MY OPINION, YOU COULD ALSO USE THEM TO LEARN TO MAKE BEAUTIFUL CLOTHING EVEN IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO SEW NOW.

I ALREADY KNEW ABOUT ALABAMA CHANIN AND WAS ENCHANTED BY THE WORK, AND PERHAPS EVEN MORE BY THE PRINCIPLES ON WHICH THE BUSINESS IS RUN. IF YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT THEM, AND AREN'T SURE, JUST GO TO THE WEBSITE AND LEARN.

DEFINITELY ONE OF MY FAVORITE AMAZON BUYS - AND THERE HAVE BEEN MANY!
