In a unique introduction that dispenses with pattern making, altering, adjusting and the printed or paper pattern, the Slapdash Sewing Method is explained in simple language and economical but explicit drawings. Sixteen different styles using no buttons, zippers or gadgets can be whipped up, with or without a machine, by the young man or woman who needs a special outfit for whatever reason or occasion. The authors provide all the necessary information on fabric, equipment, three easy stitches for hand sewing, measuring (metric and nonmetric) and sewing terms. This book is for the would-be sewer who is intimidated by ready. made patterns or the creative designer who needs help getting started. Each outfit is custom made to the individual's own measurements and there are suggested variations to add or not. Oh--and don't throw away the scraps--the leftover fabric is just what's needed for the Slapdash Memory Quilt.
