"Master Pattern Included"

 Sewing swim and action wear is easy and fun with this book. You can create a one-of-a-kind garment and select the style that looks the best on you. The Master Pattern in this book includes a variety of swimsuits, leotards, leggings and shorts. Many variations are included for one and two piece swimsuits, action wear for biking, gymnastics, aerobics, dancing and skating. With your creativity an endless variety of styles can be made.

The sewing procedures are easy to follow with many clear illustrations, that even a beginner sewer can follow and be able to make professio nal looking garments.

Making your own swimwear is much easier and faster than you can imagine and you will also save a lot of money, since each outfit takes a minimum amount of fabric. A large variety of fabrics for swim and action wear are available in most fabric stores, many of the same fabrics as used in ready-to-wear.

The multi-sized master pattern is printed on durable white paper with colour coded lines for each size. The patterns are printed on both sides of the paper so we could include as many sizes and designs as possible. Trace the patterns using tracing paper or tracing cloth made of transparent pressed fibers.

All of the master pattern pieces include 1/4? (6 mm) seam allowances. This is the best seam allowance to use when sewing swim and action wear. You can use a regular sewing machine or a serger/overlock machine.

The master pattern includes five sizes from extra small to extra large. Patterns are made to fit specific body measurements. Before you trace the pattern, choose the size by comparing your measurements to the measurement chart. Choose the size closest to your bust, waist and hip measurements. If in-between sizes, choose the larger size. The book gives instruction for making changes on the pattern for the proper fit.

This book has easy-to-follow sewing instructions with clear illustrations and time saving techniques for even the beginning sewer. All styles and creative ideas are shown throughout the book in full colour photographs.


Customize Your Sewing Patterns for a Perfect Fit

You love to sew. Why, then, do the clothes you make always bind or gap somewhere, have shoulders and armholes that line up poorly, and never follow the body's contours as they should? The fault lies not with your skills but with the patterns themselves: they're cut to an industry standard that most people just don't conform to. These user-friendly techniques will enable you to alter any pattern so that the finished product fits flawlessly and flatters the body. Find out how to take accurate measurements and compare them with the patterns from six popular companies, create a perfect master pattern and adjust the major pieces to suit your shape. Everything you sew will look sensational!


Fabric Savvy: The Essential Guide for Every Sewer

A "Must Have" for Serious Sewers

For those of you who have managed in the past to find the right pattern and the perfect new fabric, only to give up in frustration when the fabric doesn't behave like anything you've used before, Fabric Savvy is here to help. Author Sandra Betzina, host of Home and Garden TV's Sew Perfect, has wrestled with just about every fabric out there, and she's lived to tell about it.

Perfectly suited to beginning and experienced sewers alike, this excellent guide devotes, in alphabetical order, two pages to each of 85 fabrics. For every material Betzina highlights a multitude of topics, including fabric facts (bulky/drape/breathable/how fabricated), suitability (types of projects), sewing tips, lay-out (and why it matters), interfacing, stitch length, seam finish, closures, and hemming. The categories are thorough, as is the scope of fabrics addressed: waterproof breathables, tencel, and lame, to name a few, along with 14 types of silk and 8 wools.

Color photographs accompany the descriptions of fabrics and projects, while helpful illustrations further explain the techniques used. Finally, Betzina offers a glossary of fabric terms and a thorough listing of contact information for fabric and alternative pattern companies, making Fabric Savvy a necessary resource for any sewing enthusiast.


Fabric Savvy is a handy, spiral-bound reference on virtually every fabric imaginable--from the newest to the old favorites. It's a must for anyone who has ever felt overwhelmed in a fabric store by all the fabric and notion choices. Fabrics are listed alphabetically for easy reference. Specific information for each fabric includes preshrinking instructions, layout, marking, interfacing, needle and thread options, stitch length, seam finishing, pressing, topstitching, closures, hemming, and more!
