Sew U Home Stretch: The Built by Wendy Guide to Sewing Knit Fabrics by Wendy Mullin & Eviana Hartman (ISBN 0316118370)


Product Description:
Looking to give your wardrobe some pizzazz? Start sewing! Like knitting before it, sewing is being reclaimed by a new generation, one that celebrates individual creativity.Fresh on the heels of her first book, Sew U, which focused on sewing with woven fabrics, Wendy will now teach the creatively inclined how to make perfect t-shirts, dresses, and hoodies, all with soft knit fabric. She'll take your sewing to the next level, providing step-by-step instructions (both for sewing with a serger and without) and patterns directly from her own studio. And with tips on how to alter T-shirts and clothes you already have, you'll soon be revamping all your clothes to make fabulous custom creations.

I cannot sew. If I win, I forgo my win to Deedra. I hope she wins. Thought I would enter to up her chance. Go Deedra!

Abbey said...

I can sew, but with my sweet daughter's little biz going, and her God-given talent and creativity, if I were blessed enough to win, I would give it to her as a gift. She would so enjoy it.

Good going, Charnita!!
