Learn to Sew with Lauren: From First Stitches to Perfect Projects

Author(s): Lauren Guthrie


Lauren Guthrie was a very popular finalist in BBC TV's Great British Sewing Bee. Now Lauren wants to show anyone who has been bitten by the sewing bug how beautiful, useful things for your home, for yourself and for family and friends can be only a stitch away. Through a series of step-by-step projects that gradually increase in complexity, Lauren provides structured techniques that allow you to build expertise and confidence - and make some gorgeous projects in the process. The clothes and homewares reflect her own lovely pared-back style, and feature in particular the attention to detail and distinctive touches that she loves to bring to anything she makes, from an unexpected lining to a clever edging. From bags, belts and simple tops to blinds and cushions, each of the projects includes one or more variations to the design, fabric or embellishments, so that, once you have mastered the basic technique, you can create endless, stunning alternatives. To make it even easier, full-size patterns are provided with the book.
