A new book from DIY Coutre is making sewing accessible to all. With a series of beautifully designed sewing tutorials now everyone can make their own clothes.
I look back fondly to my Cloth Kits outfits made by my Mum, although obviously I hated them at the time. But here to make home sewing sexy again is Rosie Martin, the founder of DIY Coutre.
Her new book Create Your Own Fashion Collection includes 10 stylish, easy to make pieces of clothing. You’re guided through each item with illustrations and photographs. There’s even a useful techniques section to help you with things like hems, necklines and fastenings.
The book has no complex sewing patterns so even beginners can join the handmade revolution. Rosie describes the book further in this short video.
