Building the Pattern: Sew Your Own Capsule Wardrobe (Paperback)

£26.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

The fashionable Finnish sewing duo are back with a second book that shows you how to create a coherent capsule wardrobe - complete with a collection of 20 garments that are easy to make, wear and combine.



Complete with stunning photography, clear illustrations and instructions, Scandi sisters Laura and Saara offer up an enticing selection of tops, dresses, skirts, and trousers for the modern seamstress. Using the five essential building blocks, choose, customise and adapt the designs in this book to create a variety of flattering garments for every occasion that suit your style and fit your figure.



Taking you beyond the patterns featured in this book, Building the Pattern offers expert advice on how to achieve the perfect fit, alter the designs and add your own personal twist. Discover how to create clothes with care, build your sewing repertoire and embrace the slow fashion movement.



Six full-size pattern sheets are included in this neat package. The patterns are in a range of sizes from UK sizes 8 to 22 (US size 2 to 18 / 34 to 50 EUR sizes), with concise information on measuring yourself and technical sewing tips to sew for your shape.

Named Clothing is a Finnish indie fashion label initiated in August 2013 by sisters and designers Saara and Laura Huhta. They now launch two eagerly anticipated collections a year, with the aim of bringing a new perspective to making your own clothes and supporting ethical and ecological concerns in reaction to the fast fashion industry. The brand's popularity has grown over the four years as they have solidly established themselves within the UK dressmaking community. Their first book Breaking the Pattern was published by Quadrille in 2018.
