Sew Over It Book

It has 25 sewing projects to enhance your wardrobe as well as lots of tips for hand sewing, using the machine, shopping for vintage clothes and for fabrics. You don’t have to be an expert, this book is suitable for sewing virgins. I talk you through the basics with lots of lovely step by step pictures and top tips.
There are four chapters:

Customising Clothes

Lots of ways to re-invent your clothes using buttons (of course!), lace motifs, ribbons, fabric strips, beads and sequins.

Altering Clothes

Practical skills to show you how to take up hems, change sleeves, add box pleats to hems and change the shape of your clothes.

Making Accessories

Small projects to make some unique items – vintage scarf belts and necklaces, fabric earrings, customised bags & corsages.

Challenge Yourself

More challenging projects including three skirts (one of which is inspired by Carrie Bradshaw!) and a handbag that will put your new sewing skills into practice.

“This book is an extension of my sewing cafe — filled with the same passion & inspiration. It will show you the wonders of the needle & thread and how everyone can make something unique.”
