Sewing by Magic
It looks so simple, doesn't it? All you need is (naked) Tinkerbell and a pair of floating scissors.
Still looks simple for a few pages, and then....
I had no idea there were so many ways to make sleeves!
Or bodices, for that matter.
I love the minimal instructions, and the sure, emphatic blacks, but I don't for a moment believe that some of the stains on these pages aren't from tears of frustration.
The local library also has a copy of this book; theirs has an envelope in the back with actual pattern pieces, though, which mine doesn't have. Wonder if that would make it easier to use?
