Details

Maybe you already sew your own skirts, tops—or even dresses—yet the thought of taking on a coat or jacket still seems a bit daunting. In Built by Wendy Coats and Jackets, indie fashion designer Wendy Mullin puts those fears quickly to rest, with guidance and know-how that will give any level sewer the confidence needed to create the ultimate fashion essential.

Using three patterns for a fitted jacket, a basic jacket, and a straight coat, Wendy offers dozens of variations on these silhouettes so that you can step out in style in a statement-making bolero or a sophisticated, Chanel-like dinner jacket in boucle. Beginners can stick to the basic patterns, while Wendy helps more experienced sewers discover endless outerwear possibilities just by making slight pattern adjustments.

Full of easy-to-understand instructions and the secrets and shortcuts Wendy has learned as a designer and home sewer, this book’s creative projects and styling suggestions will show anyone just how simple creating a dream jacket can be.
