Alabama Studio Sewing Patterns
A Guide to Customizing A Hand-stitched Alabama Chanin WardrobeBook - 2015
This compendium takes the Alabama Chanin library to the next level, offering all the patterns from Chanin's first three books on a convenient CD, plus instructions and patterns for 12 new skirts, dresses, tops, and jackets, with illustrated guidelines for customizing the fit and style of each. Chanin teaches readers the ins and outs of refashioning shapes, raising and lowering necklines, taking in and letting out waistlines, and many more key forms of customization; she also provides guidelines for adapting patterns from other popular sewing companies to the Alabama Chanin style--stitched by hand in organic cotton jersey and embellished with stencils, embroidery, and beading.
