It is rather astounding that a fashion designer would open source her work, but this is just what Natalie Chanin has done. The Alabama Corset pattern alone is worth the cost of the book, but there is also a skirt pattern as well as several smaller projects for those who wish to try out this slow approach to sewing before plunging into a larger, more time-consuming project. I've made the corset and Swing Skirt several times each and have plans for many more. Both patterns are extremely well-drafted and a pleasure to work with.
I also like that t-shirt material is used. What a comfortable fabric. I enjoy the ideas and inspirations, and appreciate the stencils! And... our author assumes that items are meant to last through generations and she encourages use of quality products that would ensure the possibility. I like the explanations of the why's for items used. Sewing is more than just fabric, pattern and thread. It is an art that anyone can learn and refine. I still mend clothes that are worth mending.I spent time teaching my children what to look for in worthy articles of clothing, despite the price.
Whether or not you choose to hand sew, an appreciation for the instruction and essence of generations of quality of craft can be found in the Alabama Chanin books. And why not try the recipes, too!
So I got it yesterday, drooled over and marveled at the book for a few hours, and then today ransacked my closet for 2 tee shirts and went to work. And 2.5 hours later, I completed my first reverse applique tee shirt! I just love it.
I am already planning to cut the sleeves of my teeshirt and shape the body a bit, since this was a boxy red tee shirt I appliqued. When I'm finished I'll post it on my neglected blog.
Also, I am NOT a sewer (although I may become one). Haven't used my sewing machine in decades. And, I do have tons of arts & crafts project books. Most of them I look at and admire, but for whatever reason, I just don't get started on anything. This book is different. It totally motivated and inspired me to start stitching.
I love the projects because they are so outside the box - the tee shirt mums are so gorgeous, and the skirts are amazing -- I"ll be checking out thrift stores this weekend to buy them up by the dozen. It is so liberating to work with old tee shirts! No worries about messing anything up, because hey, its just an old tee shirt, and its like elementary art teachers telll you - no such thing as a mistake, you can incorporate everything into your project.
Oh, and the book actually includes recipes too! I plan to make the crackers in the next day or two - we need wheat germ. The only ever so slight criticism I would make is that I wish there were more stencil patterns! But I'll just go ahead and make some of my own and just run with it. I can't wait to start beading embellishments too...oh the plans I have....
