Subject: Fast, Fun, and Fearless Projects copying your favorite RTW Date: 6/7/12 3:55 PM

This fun book just came out in our library, so I got detoured from those un-finished projects bugging me:

Improv Sewing-2012
Blum and Immergut

Copy your favorite RTW by tracing them using knits, whip up quick skirts, tunics, kids, sundresses. Embellishing ideas for pillows, scarfs, curtains, re-purposing, easy ruching.
They leave edges mostly un-finished but use your decorative stitches around hems and sleeves, so this would be great for you beginning young 'uns wanting quick, funky summer wear.

The most useful thing I like is the basic A-line skirt and they suggest using big men's T's. I had cut up some nice thick men's golf shirt finds for my GS's summer shorts and realized that a shirt is wide enough for a women's A-line too! Good news when local knits are non-existant and menswear has nicer fabric and subdued prints.

Whoops on the sp, I was having my evening wine...blush!

Thank you for pointing out this new book. My 20-something daughters just love this kind of thing. :-)
