I bought this book on the strength of Mark Montano's work on While You Were Out and it's fantastic! So many adorable projects, and most of them are super easy and you don't even have to know how to sew well. You can use glue guns or safety pins and still get a really nice, professional look.There were things for kids' rooms too, which I really loved. I made a window treatment for my cousin's bedroom in one afternoon! Greatbook. Good job, Mark and Carly!!
It gave me tolerances and dimensioning that I was missing. I knew my window size but I didn't know how much to add to the width to have a nice gather on the rod.This book told me what I needed to know.Thanks,B.
With the help of this book I was able to make a pair of roman shades for my guest bedroom and I must say they turned out pretty darned good. I'm going to tackle a slip cover for my wing chair next!The directions are straightforward and easy to understand. They also help identify those projects that are easy for a beginner as well as ones that take a bit more sewing knowledge. Good book to add to your DIY library.
Happy with my purchase. Curtains, draperies and slipcovers are so pricey, I decided to try my hand at the slipcovers. Am I ever glad I did! To have my old chair cleaned it costs $189---- so, get sewing! :D Very pleased with the results. Ready to sew another!!!!
This was given to my daughter, who wanted to learn to make slip covers and curtains. I went thru the book and found it to be good with detail about making the different items. I found this book easy to follow.
My home is 55 years and the decor and window treatments are truly showing thier age. This new arrival to my reference collection will allow me to update, modernize and generally breathe some life back into the humble abode.I highly recommend the "Dummy" series.
