Zero Waste Sewing book

Zero Waste Sewing front cover

Coming on March 14th 2020.


Are you looking for a new sewing adventure?

Patternmaker and sewing teacher Elizabeth Haywood offers 16 wearable projects, cleverly designed to use 100% of the fabric, with no scraps or waste.

Zero waste patternmaking is one strategy for making fashion more sustainable and can also result in innovative garment shapes.

This book presents a variety of zero waste cutting themes, some new, some historical, but all influenced by the cloth itself.

Follow the clear step-by-step instructions to maximise your fabric usage, grow in confidence  and create versatile garments you’ll enjoy wearing.
