Tired of wearing the same clothes? How about revamping your wardrobe with new custom made clothes? This is a practical sewing manual that shows all the steps for making skirts and trousers, from the basics, like different hand stitches and using a sewing machine, to taking measurements and understanding patterns, all explained with detailed illustrations and photographs for each step. The results are original garments, handmade by you and made to measure. The book includes everything you must know to get started; no previous sewing experience is needed, but you will be amazed of what you can achieve: a wealth of different types of skirts -straight, curled at the waist, classic, mini, flared, balloon, mermaid, asymmetric and more- and trousers -with or without pockets, classic, skinny-fit, low-waist, and many more.
