Love at First Stitch offers a refreshing approach to dressmaking for modern makers. With jargon-busting tutorials and a down-to-earth attitude, the book takes you from the absolute basics of threading your sewing machine through to creating a wardrobe full of gorgeous clothes that you'll be proud to say you made yourself.

"Best sewing book I've ever read. And I've read A LOT!!" - Clare

Since the best way to learn is to get stuck in, Love at First Stitch starts you sewing straight away. Each chapter focuses on a project from one of the adorable garment patterns included with the book. You don't need to plough through a bewildering manual to work out how to make them - new techniques are introduced as and when you need them, so you can build your skills and confidence one project at a time.

"Love at First Stitch is an incredible resource. Endless thanks for a no-jargon book that really does fill you with hope and belief that I CAN MAKE SOMETHING!" - Sarah

The book includes full-scale pattern sheets in 8 sizes ready to use or trace off. The patterns are: Margot pyjama bottoms, Delphine skirt, Megan dress, Mimi blouse, Lilou dress - plus instructions for drafting your own simple patterns for the Brigitte scarf and Clémence skirt. You can see large photos of the patterns here and check out what readers are making on the Pinterest gallery. Variation ideas are offered for each project so you can add your own special touch and make your clothes unique to you.

"Out of all the sewing books I have read over the year or so, yours was the first that actually made me feel I could sew clothes without it being too scary!" - Marcia 

Love at First Stitch is also available in CzechDanishDutch, FinnishGermanNorth American English, Norwegian and Swedish.
