Just wondering how many use and like this book/patterns? I bought it a looong time ago and only made the shell top. It turned out just okay...I did not know how to fit then (not that I've mastered it now, but I am learning).

It is a great book - wonderful for learning to sew, and it comes with all those basic patterns that can be modified in a hundred ways. Totally love the book.

I purchased the book, but haven't made anything from it yet. However, I have been busy with other Kwik Sew patterns. I have read it from cover to cover and plan to use it in the near future.

I've had the book just sitting for many years on the shelf forgotten. But thanks to your post I've picked it up again!

I think this would make a great sew along.

I think I can add to this as a Sew-a-Long. Can non members post pictures in the reviews? I'm taking a blog break (children and time related), so I really don't want to post to my very empty blog right now.

Not all of my patterns would come from the book, some would be coordinated with the Kwik Sew pattern line. Would this be a problem?

I'm pretty sure non members can post pictures as a link to something like their Flickr page, for example.

I like the simple gored skirt (love gores on myself, lie smoothly down my hips), but it would take modifying because I don't prefer elastic waists. It'd need a zipper instead. I think that would be a fairly simple alteration, yes?
