“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.“
