What I'm Reading: Easy Guide to Sewing Skirts

Sometimes you need a book that specializes in one thing. Pants (like when you're making Thurlows), or special occasion dresses (like a flower girl dress), or maybe skirts.


This is a compact little book all about skirts. Need help with construction order?


Boom. Can't figure out a lining?


Boom. There's even a section on how to choose the right silhouette for your body.


In short: read this book if you make a lot of skirts. There's help with pockets, pleats, gathers, hems...all of it! It's written by Marcy Tilton, an authority in the sewing world and frequent Threads contributor. In fact, try to find the whole Sewing Companion Library if you can!
