Design It Yourself Clothes by Cal Patch

This book has inspired me to get back into sewing. Sewing never went away, but I've had a hard time finding the time to dedicate to it. Thanks to this book, I started making the time again.

I'm not a fan of sewing books that are overly technical. I need something simple, fun, easy and quick to follow. This book was perfect for that. It gives you the basics for designing your own patterns. Now I can understand sewing patterns better. Which will come in handy when I need to modify them. It's a good book to have on hand for reference. There was a couple pages dedicated to creating patterns from existing clothes. I would have liked to see more focused on this.

I didn't care for the designs in the book (not my taste), but I didn't read this book for that. I read this book in hopes it would teach me to design my own patterns, which it did.
