The Art of DressingPosted: February 10, 2020
I decided I deserved a treat after completing my coat, and having got down a blog reading rabbit hole I discovered this book recommendation at a new blog to me – The Craft of Clothes .
This was found via that fount of all sorts of wonderful things dressmaking/craft related – Sue the Fadanista. She has been pattern testing some of Liz Haywoods (for this is who writes the blog) zero waste patterns.
These intrigued me, and I have more ordered her soon to be released book from Amazon. While I was there I also found this book on the marketplace for £8 and couldn’t resist. I have to say that I wasn’t able to get it from the library or I would have ordered it from them.
I spent a wonderful afternoon leafing my way through this book. It has plenty of text but truthfully it’s the sort of book that you can enjoy simply by enjoying the photographs. The ladies featured are all incredibly individual (think Iris Apfel) and whilst I admire the style enormously there’s no way I could carry it off.
I’d you have a book token going begging, or are fortunate enough to have a library carrying a copy of this book, I think you could spend some time enjoying this.
Oh by the way, if I ever need a change of name I really fancy being Tziporah. Who wouldn’t after being Kim?
