Sew Retro: 25 Vintage-Inspired Projects for the Modern Girl & A Stylish History of the Sewing Revolution By Judi Ketteler
Sewing never goes out of style, and today it is more popular than ever! Sew Retro offers twenty-five stylish, vintage-inspired sewing projects -- beautiful bags, essential skirts, unique pillows, and more -- that are a pleasure to sew, thanks to easy instructions, helpful diagrams, and a pocket of ten full-size patterns.
This fun, inspirational book also uncovers sewing's colorful history, from the introduction of the sewing machine to the modern DIY movement, and features interviews with today's hottest fabric and pattern designers, including Amy Butler, Betz White, Barbara Brackman, Emma Brennan, Judie Rothermel, and Kathy Miller of Michael Miller Fabrics. Filled with gorgeous project photography and quirky vintage illustrations that bring the 1920s, 1940s, 1950s, and beyond to life, Sew Retro celebrates sewing yesterday and today.
