The Maker's Atelier: The Essential Collection: Sewing with Style [9781849499040]

(3 reviews) Write a Review

A career in fashion, a love of fabrics, a lifetime making clothes, a keen sense of styles that work for women of all ages and shapes: this is the perfect cocktail of skills and passion that make Frances Tobin's patterns for The Maker's Atelier so successful.

For this book, Frances has designed eight essential patterns, with variations to create a collection of 31 versatile pieces. The collection is mix-and-match, offering lifestyle outfits for office days to weekend dog walks to elegantly glamorous eveningwear.

Key fashion trends are refined to create stylishly simple shapes, now staples in the wardrobes of thousands of women, and then translated into dressmaking patterns that make up easily into garments.

Patterns are in a range of sizes, with information on measuring and fitting, and advice on fabrics. Only simple sewing skills are needed, and clear illustrations guide you through making each piece, so you can confidently concentrate on creating your own essential collection.


AUTHOR: Frances Tobin trained in Fashion & Textiles and graduated from London's prestigious Royal College of Art. While Frances went on to design fashion ranges for many leading brands, including Gucci, Les Copains, Esprit, French Connection and Warehouse, she always continued to make her own clothes to her own designs in order to get the look that she really wanted. Frances founded her pattern brand, The Maker's Atelier, on the belief that the simplest shapes in the finest fabrics make the most successful clothes.

    Posted by Unknown on 5th Feb 2018

    The enclosed patterns are modern classics and the author shows very effectively how to use them so that they become bespoke tailoring. The ideas are wideranging, with something for everyone's taste, size and body shape. Can't wait to start!
