Reviews

"There are 23 skirts to make [...] you can custom the skirts to fit you perfectly!" --Japanese Sewing Books blog
"[...] with 23 choices available, almost every one of them something I would wear [...] Stylish Skirts is definitely worth checking out, especially if you're a skirts fan like I am!" --Crafty Staci blog
"I do love all these designs. Sato Watanabe always has some great added detail that elevates the simplest garment." --CraftyPod blog
"Long or short, pleated, straight, ruffled, or gathered, skirts are fabulous fashion stables to have on hand...and with the patterns in Stylish Skirts, you're sure to find something to flatter every body type. Perfect for beginners and advanced sewists, these patterns are easy to follow and will work with all kinds of fabric. If you've been wanting to learn to sew your own clothes, now is the time...and this book will help you every step of the way." --FaveCraft blog
"With 23 skirt styles to sew, there is bound to be something for just about everyone [...] From A-line skirts to balloon skirts and a variety of lengths this book has skirts pretty well covered. There are several great ideas for embellishing the skirts as well" --Sweeter Than Cupcakes blog
"So the radically different thing about this book is that there are no pattern sheets. You can see a sampling of the skirts included in the book above, and as I browsed through the styles, trying to decide which one to sew, it finally hit me that the instructions were for drafting the skirt patterns from scratch. [...] Perhaps because I started the skirt late at night, it took me a lot longer than I estimated, but it's an utterly straightforward skirt to sew, and I really, really like it. Maybe even love it. It's casual with interesting bits (there are varying sized panels gathered in different parts of the skirt), and it's an ideal summer item. Maxi skirts are the best." --Sanae Ishida blog
"[...] there is great inspiration and many of the projects will get your own creative wheels turning, and you may find yourself getting lots of ideas for your own individualized projects from the book. [...] There are 23 in all . So if you love skirts, you are in luck!" --Sew Country Chick blog
"I enjoyed this book and all the different styles and patterns it had [...] instead of having patterns to trace, each skirt has a pattern with instructions for drafting. This is perfect for someone who likes to jump right into working with the fabric instead of doing lots of pattern-work first." --Feather's Flights blog
