Whether you're new to sewing or a sewing teacher, you'll find information and patterns galore in this comprehensive book. Newly revised, it includes knit tops, blouses, skirts, and pants for misses' XS through XL, with enough variations to let you create an entire wardrobe. Valuable as the patterns are, though, the commentary is almost more so -- it includes detailed instructions, technical illustrations, information on how to make alterations, and countless tips and suggestions. More expensive than the other Kwik Sew books, this book is worth every penny.

When ordering Kwik Sew books, remember to purchase Kwik Trace Cloth. The books come with a master pattern -- with all the pattern pieces and all the sizes printed on one page. Keeping the master intact allows you to access all the designs and all the sizes. Trace the pieces you will need for the size outfit you will be making onto the Kwik Trace Cloth, cut them out, and use them as your new pattern. You'll find this a very efficient way to work -- the first time you use a piece it takes the extra minute to transfer to Kwik Trace Cloth, but after that you have a sturdy, lasting pattern piece without having affected the Master Pattern. You may find yourself using the Kwik Trace Cloth for other (non-Kwik Sew) patterns as well.

One of the NearSea founders keeps her Kwik Sew books at hand and stores her pattern pieces in hanging folders in a filing cabinet kept under her sewing table. That way inspiration is always nearby!
